| contrast-01 (AMR annotation guidance)|
Contrastive conjunctions such as but, while, whereas,
prepositions such as in contrast to
and the adverbials such as however, on the other hand
are rendered using the concept contrast-01:
Example: I like classical music, but John likes jazz .
(c / contrast-01
:ARG1 (l / like-01
:ARG0 (i / i)
:ARG1 (m / music
:mod (c2 / classics)))
:ARG2 (l2 / like-01
:ARG0 (p / person :wiki - :name (n / name :op1 "John"))
:ARG1 (j / jazz)))
The example above also captures the sentences
contrast-01 is symmetric, i.e. the arguments of contrast-01 can typically be swapped
without changing the meaning:
- I like classical music, whereas John likes jazz .
- While I like classical music, John likes jazz .
- I like classical music, in contrast to John who likes jazz .
- I like classical music. John, however, likes jazz .
- On the one hand, I like classical music. On the other hand, John likes jazz .
- My liking of classical music contrasts with John's liking of jazz .
I like classical music, whereas John likes jazz.
= John likes jazz, whereas I like classical music.
Note that in some cases such as in ``It started to rain, but the game continued anyway.''
but signals a :concession
rather than a contrast-01.
