Analyzing frame element definitions

As described in a previous post, a major step in laying out the frame element (FE) hierarchy involves an examination of the frame element definitions included in the characterizations of each frame in FrameNet. This step has now been completed, at least in a preliminary manner, with the result that the frame element hierarchy has […]

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 […]
