We present a collection to assess meaning components in German complex verbs, which frequently undergo meaning shifts. We used a novel strategy to obtain source and target domain characterisations via sentence generation rather than sentence annotation. A selection of arrows adds spatial directional information to the generated contexts.

The dataset includes 138 German BVs and their 323 existing PVs with particle prefixes ab, an, auf, aus. For all target verbs, we collected (i) sentences from 15 human participants across a specified set of 14 source and 12 target domains, to address their ambiguity in context; and (ii) spatial directional information (UP, DOWN, RIGHT, LEFT), also in context.
