Autor Maximilian Köper & Sabine Schulte im Walde


We created a new collection of German particle verb derivations relying on the same resource as Kisselew et al. (2015), the semi-automatic derivational lexicon for German DErivBase (Zeller et al., 2013). From DErivBase, we induced all pairs of base verbs (BVs) and particle verbs (PVs) across seven different particles. Non-existing verbs were manually filtered out. In total, our collection contains 1410 BV-PV combinations across the seven particles.
