TitleSpeech Act and Perception Verbs: Generalizations and Contrastive Aspects
AbstractThe present paper fits into the framework of methodologies for corpus-based dictionary building, describing some of the results acquired within the LRE-DELIS Project from the application of an explicitly defined standardized procedure of corpus exploration. Emphasis is given to those aspects which seem to play a crucial role in mono- and multi-lingual lexicography, since they are linked to sense disambiguation. In particular, the general characteristics associated with the two broad classes of perception and speech act verbs and the specific properties related to individual verbs are dealt with, together with considerations on their representation in a hierarchically structured formal language. The relevance of phenomena such as the interaction between different levels of information (morphosyntactic, syntactic, semantic), coindexation, symmetry, typical modifiers, are discussed not only from a monolingual point of view, but also from a multi-lingual and contrastive perspective, as a contribution to the selection of the translational equivalent.
