We present a constraint-based case flame lexicon arctfitecture fbr bi-directionM mapping between a syntactic case Dame and a semantic Dame. The lexicon uses a semantic sense as the basic unit and employs a multi-tiered constraint struc- ture for the resolution of syntactic in- formation into the appropriate senses and/or idiomatic usage. VMency chang- ing transfbrmations such as morptnolog- ieally marked passivized or causativized forms are handled via le:xical rules that manipulate case Dames templates. The system has been implemented in a typed- feature system and applied to Turkish.
