Message 2: Electronic corpus of English dictionnaries

Subject: Electronic corpus of English dictionnaries

Hello,

A colleague of mine, Sabine Ploux from Institut des Sciences
Cognitives, has devised an electronic sofware which calculate
synonymous words (an electronic dictionnary of synonyms). It has been
established through a French corpus of french dictionaries. She would
like to do the same thing for English with a goal to automatic
translation uses but she would like to know if any electronic corpus
of English dictionaries (though not English-French) exists, where it
could be available and whether it could free, or, at least,
cheap. Would anyone know of such a corpus?

	Best
	Anne Reboul
