The lexicon harvested from FrameNet 1.3 contains 2,527 orthographically distinct, single-word verbs, distributed over 486 senses. This incorporates 3,747 distinct verb-sense pairs, meaning that each single-word orthographic verb has an average of 1.48 senses.

The TRIPS lexicon (17-7-2008) contains 2,175 orthographically distinct, single-word verbs, distributed over 265 senses. This incorporates 2,208 distinct verb-sense pairs, meaning that each single-word orthographic verb has an average of 1.02 senses.

Of the 2,527 orthographically distinct, single-word verbs in the FrameNet -harvested lexicon:

  • 1,344 are also in the TRIPS lexicon
  • 1,183 are NOT in the TRIPS lexicon (distributed over 342 senses, corresponding to 1,522 verb-sense pairs)

Of the 2,175 orthographically distinct, single-word verbs in the TRIPS lexicon:

  • 1,344 are also in the FrameNet -harvested lexicon
  • 831 are NOT in the FrameNet -harvested lexicon

The task now is to take each of the 1,522 verb-sense pairs in the FrameNet -harvested lexicon which are NOT in the TRIPS lexicon, and assign it to a TRIPS sense.

I created a file (fn2trips-mappings.xml), from the FrameNet -harvested lexicon and the TRIPS lexicon, with the following format:

frames
  > frame* @name
      > lf* @name
          > intersection
              > verb* @name 
          > complement
              > verb @name
      > others
          > verb* @name      -- these orthographic verbs do not appear in TRIPS at all
There are a total of 342 frames (i.e. FrameNet semantic types) listed, each of which is invoked by at least one single-word verb which is NOT in the TRIPS lexicon (in the 'others' element). For each frame, each TRIPS semantic type (i.e. LF-type) which invokes at least one verb which is also invoked by the FrameNet frame is listed along with:
  • the intersection - those verbs which are common to both the FrameNet frame and the TRIPS LF-type
  • the complement - those verbs which are in the TRIPS LF-type but NOT in the FrameNet frame

46 of the 342 frames have no LF-types specified, meaning that none of the verbs they are invoked by are in the TRIPS lexicon. The other 296 frames have the following numbers of candidate LF-types:

   Frames   LF-types
     59         1 
     44         2
     48         3
     36         4
     25         5
     11         6
     16         7
      8         8
      6         9
      4        10
      8        11
      6        12
      4        13
      4        14
      1        15
      1        16
      3        18
      1        19
      1        20
      3        21
      2        22
      1        23
      1        25
      2        26
      1        27
The frame which has 27 candidate LF-types is Bringing.

The 46 FrameNet frames which have no mappings at all to TRIPS LF-types (i.e. none of the verbs invoking them are in the TRIPS lexicon at all) involve 106 verb-sense pairs. We will have to ignore these verbs for the moment. I hence divided the mappings up into two files:

fn2trips-mappings-set1.xml   [296 frames]
fn2trips-mappings-set2.xml   [46 frames]

Relevance order of LF-types?
