The original PropBank
The original PropBank project, funded by ACE, created a corpus of text annotated with information about
basic semantic propositions. Predicate-argument relations were added to the
syntactic trees of the Penn Treebank. This resource is now available via LDC.
This project was continued under NSF funding and
DARPA GALE and BOLT. with the aim of creating Parallel PropBanks (the
English-Chinese Treebank/PropBank) and also PropBanking other genres,
such as Broadcast News, Broadcast Conversation, WebText and Discussion Fora, at the
University of Colorado. PropBank is also being
mapped to VerbNet and FrameNet as part of
SemLink: Mapping together PropBank/VerbNet/FrameNet.
PropBank's coverage is also being extended to provide support for AMR annotation, which makes heavy use of
PropBank frame files. This is being funded by DARPA DEFT.
