Detecting Errors in Semantic Annotation

Proceedings of the 6th Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC 2008). Marrakech, Morocco.

We develop a method for detecting errors in semantic predicate-argument annotation, based on the variation n-gram error detection method. After establishing an appropriate data representation, we detect inconsistencies by searching for identical text with varying annotation. By remaining data-driven, we are able to detect inconsistencies arising from errors at lower layers of annotation.
