  1. The patterns shown are independent of their ordering in the text. If the roles of AGENT and/or THEME are present in the pattern, this is indicated in the 1st and 2nd columns, respectively. The 3rd column shows any other role present in the pattern (the most common patterns all have a maximum of one role which is not AGENT and/or THEME). The final column shows the total number of events that have been annotated with each pattern in the corpus, together with the percentage of all events in the corpus that this figure represents.
