TitleSynonymy and Bilingual Lexicography
AbstractIn this paper three procedures are described in which synonyms and bilingual dictionaries are involved. The first procedure makes use of sets of synonymous translation equivalents in bilingual dictionaries in order to find basic materials for a monolingual dictionary of synonyms. The second procedure uses a dictionary of synonyms to check the internal consistency of sets of translation equivalents in a bilingual dictionary. In the third procedure a monolingual dictionary of synonyms is used as an aid in creating more coherence in the two parts of a set of bilingual dictionaries for a given language pair.
