One of the predicates of a sentence (often a main verb, but nouns and adjectives can also be predicates). The SemanticPredicate annotation can be attached to predicates in a sentence.
Semantic predicates express events or situations and take semantic arguments
expressing the participants in these events ore situations. All forms of main verbs
can be annotated with a SemanticPredicate. However, there are also many nouns and
adjectives that take arguments and can thus be annotated with a SemanticPredicate,
e.g. event nouns, such as "suggestion" (with arguments what and by whom), or
relational adjectives, such as "proud" (with arguments who and of what).
