Towards an Open Dutch FrameNet Lexicon and Corpus

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


This paper reports on the progress of the development of an Open Dutch FrameNet lexicon and annotated corpus. We started the project in 2017 with the annotation of a Dutch corpus of written Dutch that was previously annotated with PropBank predicates and roles. The corpus represents a diverse set of written Dutch texts. We discuss the annotation results and process. From this corpus, we have derived an initial Dutch lexicon with FrameNet frames. In the meanwhile, we designed a method to collect texts that exhibit a large degree of variation in framing similar events. We will apply this method in the future to extend the representative corpus vertically for certain types of events to obtain more insight into variation of framing.
