This paper presents a frame annotation scheme for Danish nouns, with VerbNet-derived frames and semantic roles covering both frame arguments and satellites. The scheme was implemented as a new module for a Danish frame tagger and applied to a 90, 000-token Danish treebank with ongoing manual revision. In addition to explicit frames, Constraint Grammar rules are used to map free semantic roles on noun dependents without pre-defined frames, using general syntactic-semantic context clues. We discuss the annotation scheme and present a statistical breakdown and linguistic evaluation of the assigned noun frames and adnominal roles in the corpus.
