This paper describes preliminary work concerning the creation of a Framework to aid in lexical semantic resource construction. The Framework consists of 9 stages during which various lexical resources are collected, studied, and combined into a single combinatory lexical resource. To evaluate the general Framework it was applied to a small set of English and Arabic resources, automatically combining them into a single lexical knowledge base that can be used for query translation and disambiguation in Cross- Language Information Retrieval.
