FrameNet and WordNet: Two Valuable Tools for Translation


  • Akbar Hesabi University of Esfahan


This study was an attempt to introduce two useful and relatively new tools for researches in linguistics, translation and natural language processing. For this purpose first, the theories of word meaning representation were introduced and then the semantic basis for building these tools was discussed. At the end, the structure of the tools, their advantages and the reason why these tools can prove useful to these scholars were discussed. It was proposed that designing and building a Persian frameNet should be started as soon as possible.
