@bond, any chance we can get an LTDB compiled for ERG 2018?
And here’s a few more sources of information:
You can find information about ERG analyses in terms of the MRSs at http://moin.delph-in.net/ErgSemantics, but it isn’t complete, and even if it were it wouldn’t comprehensively cover all predicates, but it usefully describes how we describe linguistic phenomena semantically.
The SEM-I (the
.smi files in the
etc/ subdirectory of the ERG) is an exported resource that lists all known predicates and their usage synopsis (like a frame). I’ve advocated making this a curated resource that the grammar conforms to rather than a snapshot of the current grammar, but the idea found no traction. In any case you might find this useful for seeing, e.g., what prediates are available and what are their core arguments.
You might also try reading the comments in the ERG’s TDL files, but sometimes they are on a higher type than the one you’re interested in.
grep often helps here.
