Abstract and Keywords

This chapter contrasts a broad use of the term frame in cognitive science with its related use in a type of linguistic analysis, describing the principles and data structure of a particular research project (FrameNet) as a model for representing frame-based analyses of lexical meanings. It introduces an extension of the project to include the semantic contributions of grammatical constructions and concludes by surveying the implications of a frames perspective on some familiar issues in linguistic semantics.

Keywords: linguistic analysis, FrameNet, frame-based analyses, lexical meanings, grammatical construction, linguistic semantics
