  • Constructicography: Constructicon development across languages

    Scope: Chapter 5 "Relations between frames and constructions: A proposal from the Japanese FrameNet constructicon" pp.141-164

     View Summary

    This chapter discusses relations between frames and constructions, based on the constructicon-building project within the Japanese FrameNet (JFN) project. The aims are: to clarify distinctions between a framenet lexicon and a constructicon; and to contribute to the on-going discussion on whether all constructions are “meaning-bearing.” I will argue that a framenet analysis involves annotating frame-based syntactic/semantic structures of words (simple words and multiwords), while a constructicon annotation pertains to describing the internal and external syntax/semantics of linguistic objects that have complex structures. While maintaining that all constructions are meaning-bearing, I will point out that meaning structures of some constructions may not involve frames and propose a frame-based classification of constructions. Finally, I will suggest that a constructicon annotation needs both semantic frames and interactional frames.

  • Constructicography: Constructicon development across languages

    Lyngfelt, Benjamin, Lars Borin, KYOKO OHARA, Tiago Timponi Torrent, John Benjamins Publishing, 2018.07,  Page: 321

     View Summary

    In constructionist theory, a constructicon is an inventory of constructions making up the full set of linguistic units in a language. In applied practice, it is a set of construction descriptions – a “dictionary of constructions”. The development of constructicons in the latter sense typically means combining principles of both construction grammar and lexicography, and is probably best characterized as a blend between the two traditions. We call this blend constructicography.
    The present volume is a comprehensive introduction to the emerging field of constructicography. After a general introduction follow six chapters presenting constructicon projects for English, German, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Swedish, respectively, often in relation to a framenet of the language. In addition, there is a chapter addressing the interplay between linguistics and language technology in constructicon development, and a final chapter exploring the prospects for interlingual constructicography.

  • Crowdsourcing frame disambiguation in Japanese FrameNet: what it says about annotation and frame assignment

    Kyoko OHara

    11th International Conference on Construction Grammar (ICCG11), 2021.08, Oral Presentation(general)

     View Summary

    This paper discusses the usefulness of crowdsourcing in linking Japanese FrameNet (JFN) and Kyoto University Case Frame (KCF), which differ in: type of frame knowledge (semantic frames vs. case frames); methodology of building (manual vs. automatic); and size (small vs. large). It proposes a method to crowdsource the assignment of a JFN semantic frame to KCF case frames. The method matches a KCF example sentence with a JFN annotated sentence, where both share the same meaning of a lemma. This paper argues that crowdsourcing frame disambiguation is effective in detecting multiword expressions (MWEs), missing frames and lexical units (LUs), and errors in frame assignment in Japanese FrameNet (JFN). It also proposes ways to alleviate the linguistic task of evaluating crowdsourced results, in deciding what kinds of lemmas to focus, where to find them, and what to do with them.

  • Interactional Frames and Language Resource Development

    Kyoko Ohara, Miriam R L Petruck

    17th International Pragmatics Conference (IPrA2021), 2021.06, Oral Presentation(key)

     View Summary

    Motivated by Fillmore’s characterization of interactional frames (1982:117), the goal of this panel is to bring together theoretical linguists working in pragmatics with frame semanticists, creators of FrameNet-inspired lexica (Ruppenhofer et al., 2016, Boas 2009) and constructicons (Lyngfelt et al., 2018), as well as developers of real world applications. The panel will provide a forum to discuss the importance of the role of interactional frames in human language understanding as well as the challenges and consequences of representing Fillmore’s interactional frames in resources based on Frame Semantics and Construction Grammar.
