We present two methods to address the problem of sparsity in the FrameNet lexical database. The first method is based on the idea that a word that belongs to a frame is ``similar'' to the other words in that frame. We measure the similarity using a WordNet-based variant of the Lesk metric. The second method uses the sequence of synsets in WordNet hypernym trees as feature vectors that can be used to train a classifier to determine whether a word belongs to a frame or not. The extended dictionary produced by the second method was used in a system for FrameNet-based

semantic analysis and gave an improvement in recall.

We believe that the methods are useful for bootstrapping FrameNets for new languages.
