This document describes in detail an inventory of 50 semantic labels designed to characterize the use of adpositions and case markers at a somewhat coarse level of granularity. Version 2 is a revision of the supersense inventory proposed for English by Schneider et al. (2015, 2016) and documented in PrepWiki (henceforth "v1"), which in turn was based on previous schemes. The present inventory was developed after extensive review of the v1 corpus annotations for English, plus previously unanalyzed 's (genitive case) possessives (Blodgett and Schneider, 2018), as well as consideration of adposition and case phenomena in Hebrew, Hindi, and Korean. Hwang et al. (2017) present the theoretical underpinnings of the v2 scheme. Though the v2 inventory aspires to be universal, this document is specific to English; documentation for other languages will be published separately.

The STREUSLE 4.0 corpus containing English annotations according to this scheme will be released at https://github.com/nert-gu/streusle/.
