TitleThe automatic construction of a knowledge base from dictionaries: a combination of techniques
AbstractIn this paper an approach is described to the construction of a knowledge base from dictionaries which combines an empirical point of view with a more theoretical framework. A distinction is made between extracting information for separate entries and building the lexical knowledge base in which this information is to be implemented. Without such an implementation the full impact of having information extracted is not explicit, while on the other hand the development of such a knowledge base cannot be done properly without an overview of the information, therefore presupposing some degree of analysis.
