[Corpora-List] Question: getting agentive noun from verb automatically

Hello all,

I am trying to get in some automated fashion the agentive noun of a given verb. For instance

buy -> buyer sell -> seller invest -> investor

and so on. I was wondering whether there is some resource that contains a mapping of verbs to their agentive nouns. I have looked around a bit in traditional resources like WordNet, VerbNet etc. but have not had any luck yet.

All suggestions are immensely appreciated.
