TitleThe retrieval of data for Slovene-X dictionaries
AbstractThe present article reflects on the linguistic issues concerning the preparation of text for a new Slovene- English dictionary. Discussion is based on concrete examples from the reversed database of the Oxford- DZS Comprehensive English-Slovene Dictionary and lexicogrammatical data from a corpus-based Slovene lexical database in the making. The key question is how to proceed with the compilation of a new, bilingual, dictionary database, using both sources but avoiding a distorted lexical analysis of Slovene in use, while also ensuring a thorough contrastive analysis of the relationships between the two languages.
