In this article, we have studied the possibility of applying Borda and Fuzzy Borda voting schemes to combine semantic role labeling systems. To better select the correct semantic role, among those provided by different experts, we have introduced two measures: the first one calculates the overlap between labeled sentences, whereas the second one adds different scoring levels depending on the verbs that have been parsed.
