Compilation and Annotation of Adjective-Adverb Interfaces in Romance. Towards a multilingual Open Access Corpus

Katharina Gerhalter, Martin Hummel, Gerlinde Schneider, Christopher Pollin


The project Open Access Database - Adjective-Adverb Interfaces in Romance aims at the creation of an annotated and lemmatised corpus of various linguistic phenomena related to Romance adjectives with adverbial functions. The project is funded by the FWF (Austrian Science Fund) and is a cooperation between the Department of Romance Studies and the Centre for Information Modelling of the University of Graz. In this paper, we will explain the currently ongoing process of data compilation as well as the morphosyntactic and semantic categories for a thorough annotation by means of some Spanish examples.
