  • Spanish FrameNet (SFN) is a research project which is developed at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) and the International Computer Science Institute (Berkeley, CA) in cooperation with the FrameNet Project.
    • 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.
    • Previous funding was provided by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain (Grants Nr. FFI2017-84460-P, FFI2014-56444-C2-1-P and FFI2011-23231), the Department of Science and Innovation (FFI2008-0875), and the Department of Science and Technology (TIC2002-01338). Additional funding has also been provided by the Fundación Comillas, the Department of Education (TSI2005-01200), and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (PNL2004-49 and PRP2006-04).
