In this paper we present a novel approach to mapping FrameNet lexical units to WordNet synsets in order to automatically enrich the lexical unit set of a given frame. While the mapping approaches pro- posed in the past mainly rely on the semantic similarity between lexical units in a frame and lemmas in a synset, we exploit the definition of the lexical entries in FrameNet and the WordNet glosses to find the best candidate synset(s) for the mapping. Evaluation results are also reported and discussed. 1 FrameNet and the existing mapping approaches The FrameNet database [1] is a lexical resource of English describing some prototypical situations, the frames, and the frame-evoking words or expres- sions associated with them, the lexical units (LU). Every frame corresponds to a scenario involv...
