  abstract =     "Fourteen linguistically-motivated numerical indicators
                 are evaluated for their ability to categorize verbs as
                 either states or events. The values for each indicator
                 are computed automatically across a corpus of text. To
                 improve classification performance, machine learning
                 techniques are employed to combine multiple indicators.
                 Three machine learning methods are compared for this
                 task: decision tree induction, a genetic algorithm, and
                 log-linear regression.",
