The Swedish FrameNet++ (SweFN++) project aims at developing an integrated Swedish lexical macro-resource to be used primarily in language technology R&D to build natural language processing (NLP) applications. Most of the component resources making up SweFN++ are existing digital lexical resources; in their case the central project effort is directed at making them interoperable on as many levels as possible. An important new resource being created in the project is a Swedish framenet. Now a sister project is starting with the aim of adding a Swedish constructicon (SweCxn) to the macro-resource. In this paper, we discuss some theoretical and conceptual issues which have arisen in the course of our work on the SweFN++ and the planning of the SweCxn, in the close encounter between the practical requirements of NLP and the theory and practice of linguistic – lexical and grammatical – description.
