WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT PERSPRED, A FREELY AVAILABLE DATABASE FOR PERSIAN COMPLEX PREDICATES IN NOW ACCESSIBLE. IT IS DISTRIBUTED UNDER THE LGPL-LR LICENSE AND AVAILABLE PER REQUEST.

PERSPRED IS A MANUALLY ELABORATED MULTILINGUAL SYNTACTIC AND SEMANTIC LEXICON. ITS FIRST VERSION, PERSPRED 1.0 CONTAINS AROUND 600 ENTRIES OF COMPLEX PREDICATES FORMED WITH THE VERB ZADAN ‘TO HIT’ AND A NOMINAL ELEMENT.

THE PRESENT VERSION OF THE DATABASE IS IN XLS FORMAT. EACH LINE OF THE DATABASE CORRESPONDS TO THE PREDICATIVE COMBINATION OF A VERB AND A NON-VERBAL ELEMENT, FOR WHICH VARIOUS TYPES OF INFORMATION ARE ANNOTATED, NAMELY THE ENGLISH AND FRENCH TRANSLATION OF THE VERB, OF THE NON-VERBAL ELEMENT AND THE MEANING OF THE COMPLEX PREDICATE, ITS SUB-CATEGORIZATION FRAME AND ALTERNATIONS. AT LEAST ONE EXAMPLE EXTRACTED FROM THE LITERATURE, NEWSPAPER OR THE INTERNET, ILLUSTRATES EACH ENTRY.

A PARTICULARLY INTERESTING FEATURE OF PERSPRED IS THAT IT PROPOSES SEMANTIC GROUPINGS OF PREDICATES.

PERSPRED 1.0, DELIVERED IN JUNE 2012, WAS DEVELOPED WITHIN ANR-DFG PERGRAM (2008-2012), PROJECT [GRANT NO.\\ MU 2822/3-I] AND IS RELATED TO THE WORK PACKAGE LR4.1 OF THE LABEX EMPIRICAL FOUNDATIONS OF LINGUISTICS (FUNDED BY THE ANR/CGI).
