MECORE DATABASES

SIGTYP 2023: The database contains information about ∼50 clause-embedding predicates in 16 languages: Catalan, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Kîîtharaka, Mandarin, Polish, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

  • Database: The database can be accessed here:
  • Accompanying paper: Please refer to our SIGTYP paper (Özyıldız et al. 2023) for details of the database.
  • Contents: The database is saved as a zip file containing 16 directories each corresponding to a single language. Each directory contains three files:
    • a csv file summarising ∼15 semantic properties and ∼12 combinatorial properties of predicates;
    • a pdf document that details the example sentences used to annotate the properties; and
    • a README file that contains information about the language as well as language-specific features of the dataset.
  • Questionnaire: The questionnaire used to elicit the properties can be accessed at OSF here.
