TitleTowards a Universal Dictionary
AbstractIn this paper we demonstrate that the process of writing bilingual dictionaries can be organized in such a way that French-English or French-Dutch dictionaries, for example, may be generated automatically on the basis of English-Dutch and English-French dictionaries. To make this possible, we have built a set of word-meanings that can be expanded and modified, and a filtering mechanism to extract appropriate meanings for individual language pairs. In addition, we have implemented a computer program using a relational database management system to demonstrate a prototype of the "Universal Dictionary".
