The Spanish FrameNet Project is creating an online lexical resource for Spanish, based on frame semantics and supported by corpus evidence.
The "starter lexicon" is available to the public, and contains more than 1,000 lexical items (verbs, predicative nouns, and adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and entities) representative of a wide range of semantic domains.
The aim is to document the range of semantic and syntactic combinatory possibilities (valences) of each word in each of its senses, through:
- human approved and automatic annotated example sentences and
- automatic capture and organization of the annotation results.
The Spanish FrameNet database will be in a platform-independent format, and it is able to be displayed and queried via the web and other interfaces.
