As part of my work in computational semantics and the interfaces with lexical semantics I have been involved in the release of data sets that may be useful for others. These data sets have typically been released under the umbrella of two collaborative projects:

Here are a few highlights:

PCA first two dimensions on MegaAcceptability data

  • MegaVeridicality: Judgments about projection of embedded clause content in positive and negative syntactic contexts for both finite and non-finite frames, covering all verbs in MegaAcceptability. That is, a complete window into factivity and veridicality in English. Version 1 (the finite subset) was released with White & Rawlins 2018. With Aaron Steven White.
