Type: Technical Reports

The report introduces some notions relevant to multilingual resources for Natural Language Processing and summarizes the model of FrameNet, a lexical resource for English. As the development of FrameNet resources for languages other than English advances, theoretical and practical issues related to multilingual representation and the processing of such resources become apparent. The aim of this report is to characterize current practices in creating multilingual FrameNets as well as to point out issues related to the status of the frame part of FrameNet as "interlingua". The details discussed and the conclusions drawn are intended to be helpful to both designers and users of multilingual FrameNets.
