Working with data from a POS annotated corpus, we show that choices with respect to the number of arguments, case marking on subjects and which light verbs are felicitous with which nouns depend heavily on the semantics of the noun in the N-V complex predicate. This initial work represents an important step towards identifying semantic criteria relevant for complex predicate formation. Identifying the semantic criteria and being able to systematically code them in turn represents a first step towards building up a lexical resource for nouns as part of developing natural language processing tools for the underresourced South Asian language Urdu.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-07-04T07:08:49Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Discovering semantic classes for Urdu N-V complex predicates</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-07-04T07:08:49Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Butt, Miriam</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:contributor>Ahmed, Tafseer</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Butt, Miriam</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
