I did a study very much like this a few years ago in an attempt to account for Japanese verb aspect using Bayesian networks. The papers I found most useful--which took into account adverb constraints--were: Alam, Y.S., "Event Types, the Properties and Lexical Entry for the Japanese Aspectual Auxiliary Verb IR-", ESCOL '86, 1-11 g Hasegawa, Y., "Syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of te-linkage in Japanese", Berkeley: University of California dissertation, 1992. Jacobsen, W.M., "The Transitive Structure of Events in Japanese", Kurusio Publishers, Tokyo, 1992. Kawamura, M., "Vendler Classes and Reinterpretation", Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol 19, No 1, 1994, pp 53-88. Smith, C.S., "The Parameter of Aspect", Kluwer Academic Publishers, the Netherlands, 1991. Verkuyl, H.J., "A Theory of Aspectuality", Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1993. I'd also recommend Krifka, M., "Thematic relations as links between nominal reference and temporal constitution", Lexical Matters, ed. Ivan Sag and Anna Szabolcsi, 99-123. Stanford: CSLI. Hope this helps. Marshall R. Mayberry, III Neural Networks Research Group University of Texas at Austin martym@cs.utexas.edu
