TitleAn outline of Norwegian Lexical Database (LDB) and its classification of adjectives
AbstractIn the sections 1-4 this paper presents a Norwegian lexical project trying to catch up with some shortcomings in relation to modern lexicography in adding a systematic semantic component to existing bases of morphology. The project also aims to reuse consisting lexicographical products and as a spin off to improve and systematise them. The project is still in its beginning, and have so far just started the definition of adjectives. Section 5 presents the adjectiv classification in WordNet and discuss some of the questions raised in WordNet presentations of adjectives. The section concludes with an alternative adjective classification built on Norwegian and German studies, which seems to answer some of these questions.
