This paper presents an approach to detec- tion of the semantic types of relation argu- ments employing the WordNet hierarchy. Us- ing the SemEval-2007 data, we show that the method allows to generalize relation ar- guments with high precision for such generic relations as Origin-Entity, Content-Container, Instrument-Agency and some other.
