T-PAS - Typed Predicate Argument Structures for Italian

T-PAS is a linguistic resource of typed predicate argument structures for Italian, acquired from corpora by manual clustering of distributional information about Italian verbs.

T-PAS are corpus-derived verb patterns with specification of the expected semantic type for each argument slot. We discover the most salient verbal patterns using a lexicographic procedure called Corpus Pattern Analysis (CPA, Hanks 2004), which relies on the analysis of co- occurrence statistics of syntactic slots in concrete examples found in corpora.

T-PAS patterns are semantically motivated; different syntactic realizations are encoded as alternating subcategorization frames within the same T-PAS.
