Summary of the paper

Title Aspectual Flexibility Increases with Agentivity and Concreteness\\ A Computational Classification Experiment on Polysemous Verbs
Authors Ingrid Falk and Fabienne Martin
Abstract We present an experimental study making use of a machine learning approach to identify the factors that affect the aspectual value that characterizes verbs under each of their readings. The study is based on various morpho-syntactic and semantic features collected from a French lexical resource and on a gold standard aspectual classification of verb readings designed by an expert. Our results support the tested hypothesis, namely that agentivity and abstractness influence lexical aspect.
