Access to multi-layered lexical, grammatical and semantic information representing text content is a prerequisite for efficient automatic understanding and generation of natural language. A FrameNet is considered a valuable resource for both linguistics and language technology research that may contribute to the achievement of these goals. Currently, FrameNet-like resources exist for a few languages,1 including some domain-specific and multilingual initiatives (Dolbey et al., 2006; Boas, 2009; Uematsu et al., 2009; Venturi et al., 2009), but are unavailable for most languages, including Swedish, although there have been some pilot studies exploring the semi-automatic acquisition of Swedish frames (Johansson & Nugues, 2006; Borin et al., 2007). At the University of Gothenburg, we are now embarking on a project to build a Swedish FrameNet-like resource. A novel feature of this project is that the Swedish FrameNetwill be an integral part of a largermany-faceted lexical resource. Hence the name Swedish FrameNet++ (SweFN++).
