PARSEME shared task on semi-supervised identification of verbal multiword expressions - edition 1.2 (2020)

Welcome to the official annotation guidelines of the PARSEME corpora version 1.2 and of the PARSEME shared task 1.2 on semi-supervised identification of verbal MWEs!

For previous versions, you can check the index of versions. See also what is new in the guidelines version 1.2 as compared to version 1.1.

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.
