1 NederBooms Hands on session GrETEL - Greedy Extraction of Trees for Empirical Linguistics Vincent Vandeghinste Liesbeth Augustinus Ineke Schuurman Centre for Computational Linguistics KU Leuven

2 Scenario 1 Do constructions like een aantal mensen occur with a plural or singular verb? Is there a difference between spoken and written language?

3 Scenario 2 Look in spoken Dutch for example sentences in which you find an indirect object (IO) and a direct object (DO) and a prepositional phrase (PP) which is not part of the IO or DO Example: In de auto geef ik de man de krant Perform the search for both main sentences as well as subordinate clauses

4 Scenario 3 Find separable verbs, consisting of a verbal part and a preposition Try to filter out other occurances of that verb with that preposition Example1: Hij houdt haar aan (arrest) Excluding: Hij houdt haar aan haar belofte (hold) Example2: Hij leest het boek uit (finish reading) Excluding: Hij leest uit het boek (reading from)

5 Scenario 4 According to the Algemene Nederlandse Spraakkunst (ANS) the personal pronoun hen is stilistically better appreciated than hun Ik geef hen/hun een boek Ik zie hen/hun Look in GrETEL for examples of hun (as a personal pronoun, not as a possessive) in written language Is there a difference between written and spoken language?

6 Scenario 5 Sometimes constructions occur such as een failliet Griekenland, een woedende Ineke, een beursgenoteerd Philips Does the corpus contain constructions of this type with a different determiner (not an article) than the indefinite article?
