	abstract     = {When working on a lexical resource, such as Swedish FrameNet (SweFN), assumptions based on linguistic theories are made, and methodological directions based upon
them  are  taken.    These directions  often need  to  be  revised  when  not  beforehand foreseen problems arise.  One assumption that was made already in the early development  stages  of  SweFN  was  that  each lexical  entry  from  the  reference  lexicon, SALDO, would evoke only one semantic frame in SweFN. If a lexical entry evoked more than one frame, it entailed more than one sense and therefore required a new entry in the lexicon.
As  work  progressed,  this  inclination  towards  splitting,  in  the  perpetual  lumpers and splitters discussion proved to be progressively untenable. This paper will give an account of the problems which  were  encountered  and  suggestions for solutions on polysemy issues forcing a discussion on lumping or splitting.},
