Abstract

This paper focuses on Semantic Roles, an important component of studies in lexical semantics, as they are captured as part of a bilingual (Czech-English) synonym lexicon called CzEngClass. This lexicon builds upon the existing valency lexicons included within the framework of the annotation of the various Prague Dependency Treebanks. The present analysis of Semantic Roles is being approached from the Functional Generative Description point of view and supported by the textual evidence taken specifically from the Prague Czech-English Dependency Treebank.
