Using Pages

Pages is the content management system (CMS) that manages COLA websites through a drag-and-drop interface and provides a collection of blocks giving units options for managing content and customizing the design of their pages.

Learn More

Managing Profiles

Profiles are a space for faculty and graduate students to provide all types of academic information about themselves including points of contact, affiliations, educational background, biography, social media links, published books, courses, and additional custom sections.

The second paragraph

 

German FrameNet (GFN) works in collaboration with the English-based FrameNet project at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, California as well as the SALSA project (The Saarbr´┐Żcken Lexical Semantics Acquisition Project) at the University of the Saarland, Germany. Ultimately, we are planning on linking lexical entries produced by GFN with the English FrameNet lexical entries in order to arrive at a contrastive FrameNet lexicon. Similar efforts are currently under way for Spanish, Swedish, and Japanese, among other languages. The newest research regarding the cross-linguistic implementation of FrameNet principles have recently been published in a book by Hans C. Boas, Multilingual FrameNets: Methods and Applications (Mouton de Gruyter, 2009).

German FrameNet (GFN) works in collaboration with the English-based FrameNet project at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, California and build on data produced by the SALSA project (The Saarbrücken Lexical Semantics Acquisition Project) at the University of the Saarland, Germany. Ultimately, we are planning on linking lexical entries produced by GFN with the English FrameNet lexical entries in order to arrive at a contrastive FrameNet lexicon. Similar efforts are currently under way for Spanish, Swedish, and Japanese, among other languages. More recently, a second project, also known as “FrameNet des Deutschen” at the University of Düsseldorf has been working on creating a lexical database for German on the basis of Frame Semantics. The projects in Austin, Berkeley, and Düsseldorf are part of a larger group of projects known as Global FrameNet, which seek to facilitate the development of frame-based language resources (and their applications) for a broader variety of languages.
