NAME: CS-5340/6340, Solutions to Final Exam, Fall 2013 1. (18 pts) Consider the following short story: John, Mary, and their two children drove to the zoo. They laughed at the crazy antics of the monkeys. One monkey was throwing bananas in the air. Another monkey was swimming in circles. Next, they watched snakes and lizards in the reptile house. Several snakes flicked their tongues against the glass, and a huge lizard sneezed in front of Tommy. The kids asked their parents to buy them food, which they ate near the elephant exhibit. Un- expectedly, one elephant grabbed a pumpkin, swallowed it whole, and then trumpeted loudly. Several nearby deer ran away when they heard the noise. Later in the afternoon, a zookeeper taught the kids that an angry camel may spit on you. That night, little Tommy dreamed about crazy monkeys, giant lizards, hungry elephants, and angry camels. For each conceptual dependency (CD) primitive ACT below, list all of the verbs in the story that would be represented by that CD primitive based on their use in the story. Each verb should be listed only once! Choose the CD primitive the best captures the meaning of the verb in the story above. (a) INGEST ate , swallowed (b) EXPEL sneezed , spit (c) MOVE flicked (d) GRASP grabbed (e) PROPEL throwing 1

2. (10 pts) For this question, you must define a case frame structure for a specific verb. The case frame should contain mappings between syntactic roles and thematic roles, but you do not need to include selectional restrictions. You do not need to fill in the case frame with the noun phrases in the sentences. Just create a case frame structure that would correctly assign thematic roles to all of the noun phrases in the sentences. (a) Create a single case frame structure for the verb “bought” that will assign the correct thematic role to all of the noun phrases in the sentences below. George bought a laptop for his daughter. Bill Gates bought 12 vacation homes with his credit card. Julie bought her son a new bicycle. BOUGHT (Active) Agent = subject Theme = direct object Recipient = PP(for) Recipient = indirect object Instrument = PP(with) (b) Create a single case frame structure for the verb “written” that will assign the correct thematic role to all of the noun phrases in the sentences below. His book was written with his wife. The document was written with a fountain pen by Mary Smith.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
