Following the line of WordFrameNet, the Predicate Matrix is a new lexical resource resulting from the integration of multiple sources of predicate information including FrameNet, VerbNet, PropBank, WordNet and ESO.
We start from the basis of SemLink. However, SemLink coverage is still far from complete. We apply a variety of automatic methods to extend its current coverage. Moreover, by using the Predicate Matrix, we expect to provide a more robust interoperable lexicon by discovering and solving inherent inconsistencies among the resources. We also plan to enrich WordNet with predicate information, and possibly to extend predicate information to languages other than English by exploiting the local wordnets integrated into the Multilingual Central Repository (MCR).
