We would like to increase accuracy of our parser by adding more
semantic information similar to what is available in Word Net. Could
anyone give us information about other products of that nature.

Thanks much

Subject: Absolute constructions



I am looking for work done on absolute constructions. Do you have some
references? A collection of data (in any language where we can find
this construction) would also be very helpful.


I am refering to constructions such as "Feitas as malas,..." in
Portuguese or, to give you an example in Spanish, "Una vez terminada
la guerra,...".


Please send your answers to:

Thanks,

Ana Lucia Santos
