TitleGrowing naturally: The DiCSCI Organic E-Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Verbs in Science
AbstractIn this paper we illustrate the principles and building methodology of the E-Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Verbs in Science (DicSci), paying special attention to the methodology being developed for its compilation which is based on the application of collocational networks and the adaptation of Corpus Pattern Analysis (Hanks 2004, forthcoming) to specialised language environments. DicSci focuses on showing specialised usage patterns commonly associated with certain verbs used in specialised contexts by means of collocational networks (Williams 1998). The different steps to create the dictionary, its present state and plans for its completion and future are explained.
