Title Annotating Abstract Meaning Representations for Spanish
Authors Noelia Migueles-Abraira, Rodrigo Agerri and Arantza Diaz de Ilarraza
Abstract Until recently, semantic annotations for different semantic phenomena were independent and unconnected. The Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR) project arised out of the need to create a broad-coverage semantic bank containing a unified set of semantic information represented in simple, single-rooted, easy-to-read structures. Because the semantic representation language proposed in AMR is biased towards English, annotating AMR structures for other languages, such as Spanish, is not a trivial task. In this paper we propose a linguistic method that we believe would help lay the groundwork for building a large semantic bank for Spanish and would guide those who would like to implement it for other languages. Thus, we analyze a broad spectrum of Spanish linguistic phenomena to come up with suggestions to adapt the current guidelines so that it is possible to annotate AMRs for Spanish. As a result of this work, we make available the first public online repository containing manually annotated Spanish AMRs.
