|Verbalization (AMR annotation guidance)|
Here are two lists that might help you whether or not to verbalize
We map many nouns to their verbal forms:
Example: The boy's destruction of the room.
(d / destroy-01
:ARG0 (b / boy)
:ARG1 (r / room))
Example: I met his math teacher.
(m / meet-02
:ARG0 (i / i)
:ARG1 (p / person
:ARG0-of (t / teach-01
:ARG1 (m2 / mathematics)
:ARG2 (h / he))))
But we don't map all nouns that have a related verb sense:
Example: California governor Jerry Brown
(p / person :wiki "Jerry_Brown"
:name (n / name :op1 "Jerry" :op2 "Brown")
:ARG0-of (h / have-org-role-91
:ARG1 (s / state :wiki "California"
:name (n2 / name :op1 "California"))
:ARG2 (g / governor)))
A governor is not just a person who governs. It's a specific rank.
Governors govern, but not all who govern are governors, including
presidents, mayors, and other members of the executive branch.
Similarly: chairman, contractor, correspondent, director, editor, president, treasurer
We also don't verbalize adjectives such as white to whiten, because whiten
means to make white rather than to be white. Something can be white
without ever having been whitened: it might have been white from the beginning of its existence.
For the same reasons, we don't map from familiar to familiarize.
Similarly: deaf, deep, glad, hard, legal, liquid, modern, popular, ripe, sad, simple, soft, stable, wide
