TitleElectronic onomasiology: Van Dale greater dictionary of synonyms
AbstractThis paper serves a threefold purpose: (a) presentation of the concept features and structural elements underlying a new Dutch dictionary of synonyms and other words with related meanings; (b) demonstration of the possibility to structure, based on a lexicological concept, a database according to strict rules. Special attention wlll be paid to how the whimsicality of the language can be made controllable by applying a structure in which a hyponym may only have one hyperonym; (c) pointing out the additional value of this electronic taxonomy of Dutch for other lexicological products.
