We present an LFG syntax-semantics interface for the semi-automatic annotation of frame semantic roles for German in the SALSA project. The architecture is intended to support a bootstrapping cycle for the acquisition of stochastic models for frame semantic role assignment, starting from manual annotations on the basis of the syntactically annotated TIGER treebank, with smooth transition to automatic syntactic analysis and (semi-)automatic semantic annotation of a much larger corpus, on top of a free-running parser for German.
