TitleA Computational Multi-Layered Italian Lexicon for HLT Applications
AbstractIn this paper, the largest computational, lexical knowledge base of Italian language is presented. PAROLE-SIMPLE-CLIPS is a general-purpose lexicon in which 55,000 words are encoded at four different levels of linguistic description. It is based on the international standards set out in the PAROLE-SIMPLE model that was consensually agreed on and adopted for creating lexicons of 12 European languages. The original and innovative features of the lexical model are outlined. The richness of the information types encoded at the four descriptive levels is illustrated with a special focus on those that are particularly specific to the underlying model, viz. the GL inspired representation of semantic knowledge, with the expressive power of the Extended Qualia Structure, the encoding of semantic argument structure and the connection between syntactic and semantic information. Finally, the way such a wealth of highly structured, granular and innovative data can be exploited in HLT applications is mentioned.
