Adjectives in the LinGO Grammar Matrix (MS)

T.J. Trimble

I propose and implement a new library for intersective adjectives in the Grammar Matrix, considering both attributive and predicative constructions, editing and extending the core grammar while adding additional capabilities to the online customization system to analyze adjectives in target languages and generate language-specific customized grammars with analyses of adjectives. I present a broad typological review the behavior of adjectives, including the morphology and syntax of adjec- tives, along with an overview of the literature on the semantics of adjectives. I also present a review of the adjectives in several large implemented deep linguistic HPSG grammars in the DELPH-IN formalism.

I develop a cross-linguistic analysis of adjectives, adapting previous DELPH-IN analyses to cover significant amounts of new data. The analysis relies not only on definitions in the lexicon, but also on defining the syntactic behavior of adjectives in the morphology. I present a computa- tional implementation of this analysis as an extension to the Grammar Matrix. Finally, I present an evaluation of this extension, showing that the extension achieves 100% coverage of development language test suites and 100% coverage of held out test language test suites, with minimal spurious ambiguity.
