TitleVerbal Aspect and the Frame Elements in the FrameNet for Polish
AbstractThis paper deals with theoretical and practical problems involved when describing a language from the morphological aspect within the FrameNet. In terms of aspect and in lexicographical description of the Polish language, there is a tendency to treat pairs where the aspectual distinction is marked by suffix as a single lexical unit. Where the aspectual distinction is marked by a prefix, pairs represent different units, e.g. kaszlnac (pf. to give a cough) -kaslac (impf.to cough repeatedly) vs. pisac (impf. to write, to be writing) –napisac (pf.to have written). More complex sense relations between perfective and imperfective verbs complicate matters even more. In addition, aspectual pairs differ in terms of what constitute their core frame elements. Many perfectives differ from their imperfective counterparts since they transform temporal quantification from a non-core to a core element of the frame, e.g. Przesiedzial w bibliotece dwie godziny, studiujac rekopisy. (He sat for two (solid) hours in the library, poring over the manuscripts) vs. Siedzial w bibliotece (przez) dwie godziny, studiujac rekopisy (He sat in the library for two hours, pouring over the manuscripts). Because of this, in the Polish version of FrameNet, each member of an aspectual pair will be initially given a separate description. Once the respective frames and frame elements for each perfective and imperfective member of an aspectual pair are established independently, the two putative frames will be compared in order to see if they can be conflated into a single frame.
