More circularities in the frame element hierarchy

As suggested in another post, the assignment of hypernyms to frame elements may introduce additional circularities into the frame element hierarchy. This process is really quite elegant, and illustrates the value of the digraph analysis technique. First, the focus of making assignments is on frame elements that are viewed as primitives, i.e., without hypernyms and […]

Circularities in the frame element hierarchy

In a digraph analysis, links between nodes may give rise to strong components, i.e., nodes that are mutually reachable. In the frame element hierarchy, ten strong components (or circularities) have arisen. In an effort to provide a strict hierarchy for frame elements, these circularities need to be broken. In doing this, it is instructive to […]
