TitleA New Kind of Dictionary: REDES, Diccionario combinatorio del español contemporáneo
AbstractIn this paper we discuss the features of a new kind of dictionary that appeared at the end of 2004. REDES, Diccionario combinatorio del español contemporáneo, under the direction of the Spanish grammarian Ignacio Bosque, is a combinatory dictionary based on data from a newspaper corpus of Spanish of approximately 250 million words and is quite different from other combinatory dictionaries in many respects. The main feature of the dictionary, according to Bosque, is the fact that the dictionary entries provide the semantic restrictions that words impose on other words. In this paper we explain the type of entries and information that can be looked up, and briefly compare the information provided with that found in some general language dictionaries of Spanish.
