TitleA Descriptive Dictionary of Contemporary Catalan: The DDLC Project
AbstractThe main goal of this paper is to present a complete overview of the lexicographical project Diccionari Descriptiu de la Llengua Catalana (DDLC), a corpus-based Catalan dictionary that is currently being prepared at the Institut d'Estudis Catalans (IEC). The DDLC is conceived as a descriptive dictionary, which means that its goal is to give a real and complete definition of each lexical item, without any restrictions based on prescriptive criteria. From this point of view, a descriptive dictionary is opposed to a standard prescriptive dictionary, in the sense that the former contains the current real uses and the latter includes only those words and meanings which are approved by the established standard. In this contribution we will present the main distinctive features of the DDLC as a lexicographical project: the data structure of the dictionary, a review of the work already done and the present stage of development.
