Dataset Summary

Motion recognition is one of the basic cognitive capabilities of many life forms, yet identifying motion of physical entities in natural language have not been explored extensively and empirically. Literal-Motion-in-Text (LiMiT) dataset, is a large human-annotated collection of English text sentences describing physical occurrence of motion, with annotated physical entities in motion.

Dataset Structure

Data Instances

Example of one instance in the dataset

{
    "id": 0,
    "motion": "yes",
    "motion_entities": [
        {
            "entity": "little boy",
            "start_index": 2
        },
        {
            "entity": "ball",
            "start_index": 30
        }
    ],
    "sentence": " A little boy holding a yellow ball walks by."
}

Data Fields

  • id: intger index of the example
  • motion: indicates whether the sentence is literal motion i.e. describes the movement of a physical entity or not
  • motion_entities: A list of dicts with following keys
    • entity: the extracted entity in motion
    • start_index: index in the sentence for the first char of the entity text

We present the Literal-Motion-in-Text (LiMiT) dataset, a large human-annotated collection of English text sentences describing physical occurrence of motion, with annotated physical entities in motion. We describe the annotation process for the dataset, analyze its scale and diversity, and report results of several baseline models. We also present future research directions and applications of the LiMiT dataset and share it publicly as a new resource for the research community.",
