In this paper we introduce the notion of “frame relatedness”, i.e. relatedness among prototypical situations as repre- sented in the FrameNet database. We first demonstrate the cognitive plausibility of that notion through an annotation experi- ment, and then propose different types of computational measures to automatically assess relatedness. Results show that our measures provide good performance on the task of ranking pairs of frames.
