This book demonstrates how the underlying principles of the English-based
FrameNet project are successfully applied to the description and analysis
of typologically diverse languages.

The stimulating collection of articles brings together insights from
lexical semantics, corpus linguistics, computational lexicography, machine
learning, and psychology to address three main questions:

1. To what degree is it possible to apply semantic frames derived from the
English lexicon to the description and analysis of other languages?
2. What types of resources are necessary for the creation of FrameNets for
French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, and Spanish?
3. How can the creation of multilingual FrameNets be automated?

The contents exemplifies the liveliness of current research on
cross-lingual applications of Frame Semantics to natural language processing.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
