PARSEME shared task on automatic identification of verbal MWEs - edition 1.0 (2017)

New edition of the shared task: these are the guidelines for edition 1.0 (2017). For the most up-to-date version, please check the guidelines for edition 1.1 (2018).

Welcome to the official annotation guidelines of the PARSEME shared task on verbal MWE identification!

Here, you'll find detailed definitons, examples and linguistic tests to guide your decision as to whether a given combination in your language is a verbal multiword expression. Use the table of contents on the left to navigate between sections and the header buttons to show/hide examples.

In addition to these general guidelines, language teams may also provide extra documentation, like lists of borderline cases and decisions taken concerning them. They should all be compatible with these general guidelines.

If you spot errors or if something remains unclear after reading the guidelines, please contact us and we'll do our best to correct the problems.
