Summary: This paper reports on ongoing work to use Formal Concept Analysis as an auxiliary tool in understanding and visualising the wealth of data produced by lexical-resource building as embodied in the construction of FrameNet, a database to capture the syntax and semantics of language use in Frame Linguistics. We present proof of the abundance of concept lattices both in the theory of frames and in its present day incarnation, the FrameNet resource, with contributions that range from data-visualisation to the fine-tuning of some lexico-theoretical concepts better understood in terms of Formal Concept Analysis.
