Verb Concept Role Designation
Source: Trisotech ( Ron Ross)
In the current definition of verb concept role designation, the phrase “is recognizable in use in the context of another role of the same verb concept” is obscure. As currently worded, the definition also precludes designations for unary verb concept roles. In addition, the definition fails to express the inherent and necessary linkage in meaning between a verb concept role designation and the verb concept itself. Finally, figure 11.2 is misleading because it omits “noun concept” as being the more general concept of “role”.
1. Change the definition of ‘verb concept role designation’ to:
designation that is of a verb concept role and that has an expression whose representation of the verb concept role is meaningful only in the context of the verb concept that has the verb concept role
2. Add “noun concept” as being the more general concept of “role” in figure 11.
3. Add these examples before the existing example for the entry:
Example: In the verb concept "party rents property", “renter” might be the verb concept role designation for party, and “rented property” might be the verb concept role designation for property.
Example: In the unary verb concept "shipment is late", “late shipment” might be the verb concept role designation for shipment.
