Extracting Semantic Frames using hfst-pmatch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


We use hfst-pmatch (Lindén et al., 2013), a pattern-matching tool mimicking and extending Xerox fst (Karttunen, 2011), for demonstrating how to develop a semantic frame extractor. We select a FrameNet (Baker et al., 1998) frame and write shallowly syntactic pattern-matching rules based on part-of-speech information and morphology from either a morphological automaton or tagged text.
