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.
There is currently a continuation of this project, funded by NSF and
DARPA, that is aimed at creating Parallel PropBanks (the
English-Chinese Treebank/PropBank) and also PropBanking other genres,
such as Broadcast News, and Broadcast Conversation, at the
University of Colorado. PropBank is also being
mapped to VerbNet and FrameNet as part of
SemLink: Mapping together PropBank/VerbNet/FrameNet.
