Book Information


Title: Towards a Multifunctional Lexical Resource
Subtitle: Design and Implementation of a Graph-based Lexicon Model
Written By: Dennis Spohr
Series Title: De Gruyter Lexicographica. Series Maior 141

What are the principles according to which lexical data should be represented
in order to form a lexical database that can serve as a basis for the
construction of several different monofunctional dictionaries? Starting from
the notion of lexicographic functions as defined by Henning Bergenholtz and
Sven Tarp, this question is approached by analysing how current electronic
dictionaries and lexical resource models attempt to satisfy the needs of
different types of users in different usage situations, in order to identify
general requirements on the model for a lexical resource that aims to be
“multifunctional” in the above sense. Based on this analysis, this book
explores the use of formalisms developed in the context of the semantic web
to approach both general and specific lexicographic questions, in particular
the representation of multi-word expressions and their properties and
relations. In doing so, this book not only addresses several topics which are
of relevance to lexicographers and computational linguists alike, but also
supports its claims by providing a prototypical implementation of a
multifunctional lexical resource using semantic web formalisms.
