A method is presented for automatically extending WordNet with the telic relationships proposed in Pustejovsky's lexicon model. The method extracts telic relationships from WordNet glosses by first selecting a telic word through a pattern matcher aided by a part-of-speech tagger and then employing a word disambiguation module to select the specific meaning (synset) of the telic word. The method is shown to be fruitful, inferring a number of useful relationships.
