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 […]

Analyzing the frame element digraph: Initial steps

The main objectives of analyzing the frame element digraph, whose derivation was described in a previous post, are to identify the primitive frame elements and to show the derivational hierarchy of each of the other frame elements.  There are 1015 frame elements in the frame element dictionary. Based on the hypernym relationships, this yields a […]

Frame element hierarchy

O’Hara and Wiebe (2009) provide an inventory of semantic relations derived from the frame elements of FrameNet, along with a mapping identifying what was done for semantic roles occurring at least 50 times. They also discuss a number of other schemes for identifying a set of basic semantic relations or roles. Marquez et al. (2008) […]
