Semantically Annotated Textual Entailments - SemAnTE 1.0

SemAnTE is a semantic annotation project carried out on the Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE) datasets. The annotation scheme used addresses three types of modification that license entailment patterns: restrictive, appositive and conjunctive. These inferential constructions were found to occur in 81.21% of the entailments in the RTE 1-4 corpora and were annotated with cross-annotator agreement of 68% on average. The corpus contains 2,805 pairs of positive entailments, 2,278 of which were annotated for inferential semantic constructions.

The annotation work is described in: Toledo et al. Semantic Annotation for Textual Entailment Recognition. In Proceedings of the 11th Mexican International Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Lecture Notes in Artificial Inteligence, Springer-Verlag, 2012.

Work on this corpus was done as part of the research program Between Logic and Common Sense at Utrecht University, supported by an NWO Vici grant.
