TitleThe first Slovene automatically compiled dictionary of abbreviations
AbstractAbbreviations are difficult to deal with (Gabrovšek, 1994) and represent a growing phenomena present in all languages. The scope of this article is to present the first Slovene automatically compiled dictionary of abbreviations. In the paper we present how we automatically extract abbreviation-expansion pairs out of newspaper texts and obtain genuine pairs, how we cope with the automatic editing phase and add language qualifiers to expansions and transform non-nominative expansions into nominative. The first Slovene automatically compiled dictionary of abbreviations is available online, free of charge, on the web site of Termania. It is the first dictionary produced automatically from newspaper articles with the help of algorithms. Algorithms represent a link between the text and the semi automatic production of a dictionary of abbreviations. That is why the production and further development of algorithms is essential and useful for lexicographers.
