Linking FrameNet and Natural Languages via Thematic Role Structures

Yılmaz Kılıçaslan and Gurkan Tuna
Abstract—The aim of this paper is twofold. On the one hand, it is argued that thematic roles can be organized into three hierarchical fields: the locative field, the figural field, and the psychological field. On the other hand, the paper offers insights into how to link FrameNet to these fields. Three frames are proposed to carry out such a linking function: Intentionally_affect, Transitive_action, and Mental_activity. It is suggested that constituents of natural language sentences can be linked to the relevant parts of FrameNet via the mediation of these frames and the thematic fields.

Index Terms—FrameNet, frames, semantic roles, thematic roles, thematic fields.
