KrennPPV: German PP-Verb collocation candidates annotated by Brigitte...

Description Usage Format Author(s) References

Description

This data set lists 5102 frequent combinations of verbs and prepositional phrases (PP) extracted from a German newspaper corpus. The collocational status of each PP-verb combination was manually annotated by Brigitte Krenn (2000). In addition, pre-computed scores of several standard association measures are provided.

The KrennPPV candidate set forms part of the data used in the evaluation study of Evert \& Krenn (2005).
