dc.description.abstractThis paper describes a refinement to our procedure for porting lexical conceptual structure into new languages. Specifically we describe a two-step process for creating candidate thematic grids for Mandarin Chinese verbs, using the English verb heading the VP in the subdefinitions to separate senses, and roughly parsing the verb complement structure to match to our thematic structure templates. The procedure is part of a larger process of creating a usable lexicon for interlingual machine translation from a large on-line resource with both too much and too little information necessary for our system.
