TitleThe Yonsei Corpora of Korean and lexicographical projects
AbstractKoreans need a dictionary that will do full justice to the phenomenal changes in the language in recent decades. The Yonsei Lexicographical Center has structured several corpora of Korean, totalling over 15 million tokens to date, collected on the basis of a survey of the reading habits of adults, library lendings, and lists of important books made by Publishers Cooperative, and has developed computational tools specially keyed to process the agglutinative character of Korean. The corpora are the basis on which a dictionary worthy ofthe electronic information age is being compiled.
