TitleWWW Bilingual Chinese-English Language Dictionary Database
AbstractThe application described in this paper is intended to facilitate web access to lexical information for Chinese and English. A Visual Basic application connects front-end HTML forms with a back-end object-oriented database implemented using LPA Prolog++. The three main components of the application are (1) the back-end database for storing lexical information; (2) a Web Client application for front-end query input; (3) an Agent application to handle the exchange between the client's queries and the database. The access strategies being incorporated into this application are based on natural classes of lexis defined according to thematic, taxonomic and semantic relations.
