Abstract : This paper presents ongoing work for the construction of a French FactBank and a lexicon of French event-selecting predicates ESPs, by applying the factuality detection algorithm introduced in Saurí and Pustejovsky, 2012. This algorithm relies on a lexicon of ESPs, specifying how these predicates influence the factuality of their embedded events. For this pilotstudy, we focused on French factive and implicative verbs, and capitalised on a lexical resource for the English counterpartsof these verbs provided by the CSLI Group Nairn et al., 2006; Karttunen, 2012.

Keywords : factuality event selecting predicates factive and implicative predicates
