Summary/Abstract: The paper presents BulFrame – a web-based system designed for creating, editing, evaluating and viewing conceptual frames. A unified theoretical model for the formal presentation of conceptual frames has been developed, which predetermines the architecture of the application for data processing. The conceptual frame defines a unique set of syntagmatic relations between verb synonymous sets representing the frame and synonymous sets of nouns expressing the frame elements. In this way, the structure of the conceptual frame combines and builds on the semantic knowledge presented in WordNet and FrameNet.
