In VerbNet, each frame has a semantic representation like this:

cause(Agent, E) manner(during(E), directed motion, Agent) !contact(during(E), Agent, Patient) manner(end(E),forceful, Agent) contact(end(E), Agent, Patient)

I'm looking for a reference that lists all the possible functions, parameters and values that are possible in VerbNet. I've looked at the papers listed on the VerbNet publications page, but the ones I found that covered semantics didn't have any comprehensive list. I also saw this, but it only lists out all the possible values without explanation of how they fit into the 'argument structures', and indeed what the 'argument structures' for each predicate are. Thanks!
