Description We present the latest results of the process of final work on preparing the second stable version of the large lexicon of Czech verb valencies named VerbaLex. VerbaLex lexicon has been developed at the Masaryk University NLP Centre for the last three years. The current stage of this unique language resource aims at full interconnection with the pivot world semantic network, the Princeton WordNet. The paper describes the techniques used to achieve this task in a semi-automatic way. We also describe interesting parts of preparation of a printed representative lexicon containing an important subset of VerbaLex with the valency description adapted to human readable forms.
