In this paper, we present a rule-based system for the assignment of FrameNet frames by way of a "detour via WordNet". The system can be used to overcome sparse-data problems of statistical systems trained on current FrameNet data. We devise a weighting scheme to select the best frame(s) out of a set of candidate frames, and present first figures of evaluation.
