FrameNet

In this project, we will annotate predicate-argument structures in the SoNaR corpus with frames and frame elements from FrameNet.

About Frame Semantics and FrameNet
FrameNet is a lexical resource that is based on a linguistic theory called Frame Semantics. This theory, developed by Charles J. Fillmore, aims to describe the meanings of lexical items and grammatical constructions in terms of semantic framesAn example of such a frame is Cooking_creation, which describes the general scenario of food and meal preparation. In Frame Semantics, it is said that words like cook and bake `evoke' the frame in the minds of the speaker and hearer. These frame-evoking words are called lexical units of the Cooking_creation frame. The grammatical arguments of these lexical units, then, denote the participants that are typically involved in the scenario, such as COOK or INGREDIENTS. These participants are defined as frame elements (FEs) in FrameNet.

The goal of this annotation project
We are developing systems that can automatically identify frame-semantic structures in Dutch texts. These systems should be able to (1) recognise the predicates that evoke a certain frame, (2) label the predicate with the correct frame, and (3) label the arguments of the predicate with the correct frame elements. For example, in the sentence below, the system has to recognise that baked evokes the frame Cooking_creation, and label grandmotherusa pie and from rhubarb and strawberries respectively as the COOK, RECIPIENT, PRODUCED_FOOD and INGREDIENTS.
  1. Grandmother baked us a pie from rhubarb and strawberries.
To evaluate these systems, we need texts that have been annotated with this information by humans. Therefore, given a predicate and its arguments in a sentence, this annotation task will consist of (1) Frame Identification and (2) Frame Element Identification. We can then compare the results of the system to the `gold standard' created by human annotators!
