A few words of caution

You are currently using the beta version of the Erlangen Valency Patternbank.

We must warn users that this version is still subject to change as far as categorization of items is concerned.

The list of patterns is not to be regarded as final. We wish to point out that the perspective on the VDE data presented by the Patternbank throws new light on some on the information in the VDE so that the patterns given are in a constant process of revision. Furthermore, we invite users to send us their comments and also examples of patterns we have missed.

We would be very grateful for such error reports as well as for a discussion of design decisions and of course suggestions for improvement.
