[Corpora-List] methods to identify the direction of causation

Dear all,

With a few colleagues, we're working at the problem of identifying the prototypical relation of causation between words/concepts (e.g., virus causes death, rather than vice-versa).

We are framing this as an out-of-context, concept-level task (that is, we're not trying to identify the cause relation as it is expressed in specific sentences, but as it holds canonically between word pairs).

This is a new area for me, so I'd be grateful for pointers to papers that have proposed corpus-based methods to address this task.

Thanks in advance,
