We explore the use of FrameNet (FN) frames and their frame elements to represent content from the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Self-Care chapter. Terms were extracted from the ICF and mapped to FN frames. The mappings were validated by an expert. FN provided relevant and nearly complete coverage of ICF terms, suggesting FN may be an important resource to leverage for semantic language processing and knowledge representation in this domain.
