Semantic Role Labeling (SRL) plays a key role in many NLP applications. The develop- ment of SRL systems for the biomedical do- main is frustrated by the lack of large domain- specific corpora that are labeled with seman- tic roles. Corpus development has been very expensive and time-consuming. In this paper we propose a method for building frame-based corpus on the basis of domain knowledge pro- vided by ontologies. We believe that ontolo- gies, as a structured and semantic represen- tation of domain knowledge, can instruct and ease the tasks in building the corpora. In the paper we present a corpus built by using the method. We compared it to BioFrameNet, and examined the gaps between the semantic clas- sification of the target words in the domain- specific corpus and in FrameNet and Pro...
