In my dissertation project I develop a frame-semantic parser for French based on the framework of Tree-Adjoining-Grammars (TAG) and Neural TAG supertagging. Semantic parsing is a task of computational processing of natural language utterances to structured and logically interpretable meaning representations. These meaning representations can be used in downstream applications for further tasks like query execution, logical inference or reasoning. Frame-semantic parsing uses semantic frames for representation of the sentential meaning within the framework of frame semantics. The core idea of frame semantics is based on the assumption that the meaning of a single word can be defined through the essential background knowledge related to this word. During the last two decades, several frame-annotated linguistic resources were created, which initiated an increased research into frame-based semantic role labeling (SRL) and frame-semantic parsing. In the planned PhD dissertation I intend to use the available linguistic resources for French and implement a data-driven frame-semantic parsing system on top of them.
My dissertation is part of the TreeGraSP (https://treegrasp.phil.hhu.de/) project.
