The identification of various types of relations is a necessary step to allow computers to understand natural language text. In particular, the clarification of relations between predicates and their arguments is essential because predicate - argument structures convey most of the information in natural languages. To precisely capture these relations, wide-coverage knowledge resources are indispensable. Such knowledge resources can be derived from automatic parses of raw corpora, but unfortunately parsing still has not achieved a high enough performance for precise knowledge acquisition. We present a framework for compiling high quality knowledge resources from raw corpora. Our proposed framework selects high quality dependency relations from automatic parses and makes use of them for not only the calculation of fundamental distributional similarity but also the acquisition of knowledge such as case frames.
