Extraction et représentation des constructions à verbe support en espagnol

Abstract : The computational treatment of support verb constructions (take a picture, make a presentation) is a challenging task in NLP. This is also true in Spanish, where these constructions are frequent in texts, but not frequently included in machine-readable lexicons. Our goal is to extract support verb constructions from a very large corpus of Spanish. We fine-tune a set of morpho-syntactic patterns based on a large set of possible support verbs. Then, we filter this list using thresholds and association measures. While quite standard, this methodology allows the extraction of many good-quality expressions. As future work, we would like to investigate semantic representations for these constructions in multilingual lexicons.
