SemEval 2019 Task 1: Cross-lingual Semantic Parsing with UCCA

by   Daniel Hershcovich, et al.
Hebrew University of Jerusalem

We present the SemEval 2019 shared task on UCCA parsing in English, German and French, and discuss the participating systems and results. UCCA is a cross-linguistically applicable framework for semantic representation, which builds on extensive typological work and supports rapid annotation. UCCA poses a challenge for existing parsing techniques, as it exhibits reentrancy (resulting in DAG structures), discontinuous structures and non-terminal nodes corresponding to complex semantic units. The shared task has yielded improvements over the state-of-the-art baseline in all languages and settings. Full results can be found in the task's website <>.
