Tutorial for ZAS database on sentence-embedding predicates published


Dr. Livia Sommer, research associate in Research Area 3, has created a tutorial video on how to use the database on sentence-embedding predicates. The English-language video is intended to make research easier for researchers worldwide.

The database documents the sentence embedding patterns of lexical predicates in several languages. The focus is on collections of selected corpus examples, which for each predicate show different embedding types, and which are coded according to relevant grammatical properties.

The contemporary German part of the database is currently the largest. In cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for the German Language in Mannheim (IDS), the ZAS has made it publicly accessible to other researchers on the OWIDplus platform.

Further information and the database itself can be found here.
