Annotation guidelines
PARSEME shared task on automatic identification of verbal MWEs - edition 1.1 (2018)

Language-specific categories (LS)

Language-specific categories can be proposed for annotation in this task provided that they are carefully defined and accompanied by linguistic tests that allow to distinguish them from other categories. We recommended not redefining the universal and quasi-universal categories described here, but introducing new names and abbreviations in order to answer such needs.

When a new language(-group)-specific category is introduced, we encourage the use of the LS category with a dotted extension, e.g. LS.SIM or LS.PROV (for "language-specific simile" or "language-specific proverb").
