TitleA Computational Lexicographer’s Workbench
AbstractThe paper presents a computational environment to support developing a lexicon for natural language processing. The environment provides four independent but closely related processing modules: language analyzers (morphological and syntactic dependency analyzers) used for accumulation of tagged corpus, a searcher and a browser of tagged corpora, a lexicon compiler, and language resource exchangers. The underlying idea is to utilize up-to-date language technologies to minimize both the human labour and the inconsistency that are unavoidable in manual compilation of a lexicon. The proposed computational environment enables an efficient construction of a consistent and fertile lexicon. The target language of the project is Japanese.
