Associate Professor Martha Palmer has received two new grants from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to perform semantic annotation of large language databases for machine translation and other natural-language processing applications. The aim of the first project is to expand Palmer's Propbank database for English and Chinese; the aim of the second is to build a pilot Propbank database for Arabic. The Arabic Propbank pilot project involves researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University, as well as University of Colorado Linguistics PhD student Aous Mansouri, who is serving as a research assistant on the project. Palmer has appointments in both the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Computer Science.
