Exploring the thematic-frame mapping
FunGramKB (Functional Grammar Knowledge Base; Periñán and Arcas 2010a, 2010b; Periñán and Mairal 2010b) has three levels of knowledge representation (i.e. lexical, conceptual and grammatical). Conceptual modelling takes place within the Ontology, whereas the implementation of both the semantic and the constructional information of lexical units belongs to the lexical level. Both processes are designed to be completely independent within the knowledge base. Nevertheless, concept encoding and representation at the level of deep semantics and the semantic definitions of the predicates belonging to the lexicons of different languages are clearly intertwined. The objective of this paper is to analyse how the interaction of deep and shallow semantics takes place within this full-fledged knowledge base.
