The Process of Creating a FrameNet Entry
Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Hannover (Linguistik), course: Frame Semantics, language: English, abstract: With his theory of Frame Semantics, Charles J. Fillmore provided an utterly innovative way of approaching word meaning and conceptualization. FrameNet, the project developed in line of the new insights, gives out information on words that is often said to exceed that provided by traditional dictionaries. This term paper seeks to scrutinize this assumption by illustrating the working process by which entries for FrameNet are generated, using the example of the synonyms befuddle and bamboozle. Furthermore, it sets out to define the frames to which both Lexical Units belong. For this purpose, chapter 1 provides a theoretical introduc and the design of FrameNet. Moreover, it contrasts FrameNet with other approaches to meaning. A corpus analysis for befuddle and bamboozle will be conducted typical use and the data will be analyzed in chapter 2. Chapter 3 presents befuddle and bamboozle in comparison and contrast. Finally, the frames that both lexical units have in common will be defined in chapter 4. The process is mainly based on the step-by-step description provided by Fillmore Lexicon. The Semantics of Risk & Atkins, 1992).
