Towards resolving two fundamental issues in semantic role theory
Aliaksandr Huminski
April 2021

The current state of semantic role theory is investigated to understand the reason or reasons why, even after so long, there remains no agreement to date about two fundamental issues: (a) how many roles are needed and what they are; and (b) how to distinguish a valid set of roles from an invalid one. The goal of this paper is to explore possible answers, not to assume they are final.
