Abstract

This paper argues that wordnets, being concept-based computational lexica, should include information on event and argument structures. This general approach is relevant both for allowing computational grammars to cope with a number of different lexical semantics phenomena, as well as for enabling inference applications to obtain finer-grained results. We also propose new relations in order to adequately model non explicit information and cross-part-of-speech relations.
