TitleWord formation in electronic language resources: state of the art analysis and requirements for the future
AbstractWe report on a state of the art survey on electronic lexical resources for word formation; these include online specialized dictionaries for interactive use, a grammar information system, as well as a few online tools for morphological analysis. Our comparison is inspired by the Function Theory of Lexicography (e.g. Tarp 2008), and by a definition of needs of users in different communicative situations. Our survey is part of plans towards electronic dictionaries for word formation, and we thus formulate requirements that such dictionaries should ideally fulfil.
