Using parallel corpora for automatic transfer of FrameNet annotation

Johansson, Richard LU and Nugues, Pierre LU orcid (2005) 1st ROMANCE FrameNet Workshop
Abstract
We present a method for producing FrameNet-annotated text for non-English text. The method uses sentence-aligned corpora and transfers target words and frame elements using a word aligner.

The system was tested on an English-Spanish parallel corpus. On the task of target word projection, the system had a precision of 69% and a recall of 59%. For sentences

with non-empty targets, it had a precision of 84% and a recall of 81% on the task of transferring frame elements. The approximate precision of the complete frame element bracketing of Spanish text was around 64%.
