Case Frames

A case frame is a lexical definition for a word sense that tells how other phrases are related to it. A case frame might include:

HIT-1   < subj>   +animate
        < obj>    +concrete
        [with < inst>   +concrete,-animate]

-->    STRIKE   AGENT      < subj> 
               THEME      < obj> 
               INSTRUMENT < inst> 

Similar patterns work well for prepositions:

< person>  WITH < person> 
< location>  OF < object>
