AnswerFinder is a framework for the development of question-answering systems. AnswerFinder is currently being used to test the applicability of graph representations for the detection and extraction of answers. In this paper we briefly describe AnswerFinder and introduce our method to learn graph patterns that link questions with their corresponding answers in arbitrary sentences. The method is based on the translation of the logical forms of questions and answer sentences into graphs, and the application of operations based on graph overlaps and the construction of paths within graphs. The method is general and can be applied to any graph-based representation of the contents of questions and answers.
