TitleA Construction-based Approach to the Lexicalization of Interjections
AbstractSo far there is no unified treatment of interjections with respect to both their cognitive or emotional content and to their discourse functions. Furthermore, the various contributions interjections can make to automatic speech processing systems have not been exploited at all. An approach to the description of interjections on the basis of general constructions will be presented which accounts for the productivity of the word class. Finally, means for lexicalization in a lexical knowledge base will be suggested which guarantee efficient processing of actual and potential interjections.
