In this table, a link to a zipped file (prep.zip, where prep identifies the preposition) contains data generated during The Preposition Project, specifically:

  1. The Excel spreadsheet containing the data in the web pages (Sense Analysis prep.xls),
  2. The tab-separated text file used to create the Excel spreadsheet (pp-prep.txt) and the Excel spreadsheet containing the full instances file with sense tags for the preposition (FrameNet prep Instances.xls),
  3. The summary lexicographic treatment of the preposition in a Word document (prepTreatment.doc),
  4. The sentences from the FrameNet database in a Senseval-compatible format (pp-prep.sents.xml) with an answer key (pp-prep.sents.key), and an XML file (gold standards for preposition disambiguation) showing a document identifier (pp-prep.sents.fn.xml), and
  5. The alternation patterns (other prepositions and other syntactic realizations filling the same semantic roles) in a tab-separated text file (pp-prep.alters.txt).
