This project is funded by the Swedish Research Council for the years 2011-2013 (nr 2010-6013) and with a strategic research grant from the University of Gothenburg for the focus research area language technology.
The goal of the SweFN++ project is to build an open-content -- i.e., freely available and modifiable -- integrated lexical resource for Swedish -- so far lacking -- to be used as a basic infrastructural component in Swedish language technology (LT) research and in the development of LT applications for Swedish.
The resource -- Swedish FrameNet++ -- will consist of two main components:
Additionally, we aim to develop a methodology and workflow which makes maximal use of LT and other tools in order to minimize the human effort needed to build SweFN++.
SweFN++ will be a versatile basic lexical building block in Swedish LT research and LT applications, where two important areas in the near future will be LT-based eScience (particularly in the framework of CLARIN) and the processing of language data in connection with the Semantic Web. In both cases the semantic information in SweFN++ will be crucial to the realization of the full potential of those areas.
