TitleThe Use of Corpora in Bilingual Lexicography
AbstractThe publication in 1994 of the first bilingual dictionary to use corpus material, the Oxford-Hachette English-French, French-English Dictionary (OXHA), marked the start of a new age of corpus-based bilingual lexicography. OXHA's innovation is being taken a few steps further in the Bilingual Canadian Dictionary (BCD) project. In addition to using two unilingual corpora - one in English, the other in French, as does the OXHA team, the BCD also uses a bilingual, translated corpus. While the OXHA team only used corpora at the editing stage, the BCD team uses corpora throughout the dictionary-making process. This paper will present the corpora used by the BCD, the various stages at which they are used, and the way they are used.
