SCF Extractor (IT)

‘SCF Extractor (IT)’ is a service that performs inductive subcategorisation extraction from dependency parsed texts, formatted according to the CoNLL-X format. This tool/service was optimized for Italian.

The SCF Extractor tool was developed at CNR-ILC and deployed as a soap web service within the EU-FP7-STREP PANACEA project (

The service requires 2 input data: 1) a dependency parsed text corpus the CONLL-X format; 2) a list of verb lemmas for which the subcategorization frames will be extracted.
