Summary:
The SIMPLE Project provides the description of semantic units and their connection to the correspondent morphosyntactic units within the PAROLE lexicon. The coded information contains concept type classification, distribution by class and semantic domain, synonym relations determination, predicative structure definition, argument structure and semantic roles constraints. 10.000 semantic units were coded for 12 European languages resulting, thus, in a set of harmonized multifunctional syntactic lexica.
