In this paper, we present a new approximation in Natural Language Processing (nlp) aimed at knowledge representation and acquisition using a formal syntactic frame. In practice, we introduce our implementation on an encyclopedic corpus in a botanic domain, illustrating the algorithm on a set of preliminary tests.
