TitleCompiling a Monolingual Learner’s Dictionary on Corpus Linguistic Principles: the Case of YLDCK
AbstractThe Yonsei Learner's Dictionary of Contemporary Korean, to be published at the end of this year, has been compiled on the basis of a forty-three million running words corpus. Its features may suggest something of help to similar projects: 1) All the 52,000 headwords appear at least fourteen times in the corpus. 2) All the examples are taken from the corpus, with least editorial tampering. 3) All possible users, whether native or foreign, are treated as learners who will leam something new, even in the case of "easy words". 4) Great endeavors have been made to integrate semantic and syntactic information.
