TitleCombining Semantics and Syntax in Monolingual Dictionaries, Attacking the Enemy from Both Flanks
AbstractIn this paper we present a method for sense description and discrimination for Danish which combines semantic and syntactic approaches in the development of dictionaries. Dictionaries for humans are often based on intuitive semantic distinctions, whereas most dictionaries for machines are mainly based on syntactic analysis. In both cases, the dictionaries are unable to provide coherent and sufficiently fine-grained sense distinctions and descriptions. It is our claim that a cognitive frames approach to lexical semantics combined with a syntax-driven approach based on intersubjectively determinable distributional criteria provides us with a systematic and explicit method which paves the way for the development of multi-purpose dictionaries.
