Abstract: Research currently being conducted in the area of Natural Language Processing is still far from achieving deep levels of understanding of language. To build intelligent systems that deal with the representation of meaning, it is necessary in the field of language technologies, to create wide coverage semantic resources. The main goal of our research is the establishment of classes for representing events in a computational system. The basic unit of representation is the feature; we have considered four specific features: dynamism, telicity, duration and gradual change. From the combination of these semantic features we have established a set of event classes that allows us to characterize verbal behavior. To establish these classes we took into account possible event changes that a verbal unit may suffer because of the context, thus representing the compositionality of event meaning. Therefore we have considered the prototypicity of verbal senses, and the sensitivity of the different classes to the context. The total number of defined classes is classified into two groups, simple classes: states, processes and points, the combination of which gives rise to the complex classes: culminations, accomplishments and graduals.
