We describe the ongoing construction of a large, semantically annotated corpus resource as reliable basis for the large- scale acquisition of word-semantic infor- mation, e.g. the construction of domain- independent lexica. The backbone of the annotation are semantic roles in the frame semantics paradigm. We report expe- riences and evaluate the annotated data from the first project stage. On this ba- sis, we discuss the problems of vagueness and ambiguity in semantic annotation.
