Welcome to FrameNet!

Website Maintenance Completed

This website was down for maintenance from 17:00-20:00 PST (00:00-03:00 May 19 UTC). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Everything should now be restored; please let us know if an (new) problems occur.


This is the official website for the FrameNet Project, housed at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, California.

If you just want to explore, please type a word or phrase into the "Search" box at the left; this will look for the word in the FrameNet database. Verbs are more likely to give interesting results than nouns.

For a more structured approach to learning about FrameNet, please begin with the tab "FrameNet/About FrameNet" above.

Almost all of the FrameNet data can be reached by browsing this website--you do not need a login to do so. If you need a machine-readable copy of the data, please go to "FrameNet Data/Request FrameNet data".

Thanks. -Collin Baker, Project Manger
