TitleFor an informative and coherent classification of common nouns
AbstractThis paper deals with the interaction between linguistic data, as apprehended by a linguist, lexicographical description and computational lexicology. It concentrates on one class of words, that of common nouns, and looks at a case where a subset of mass nouns behave like count instead of siding with their fellow mass. This case raises the question of how to provide an informative and coherent classification for common nouns. The relevance of a proper classification ofnouns is approached from the point ofview of the characterisation of its combinatorics, an aspect relevant for all dictionaries especially in their function of language knowledge repositories for a learner, and from the point of view of the ontology behind the classification, an aspect relevant primarily for the development of sound lexical knowledge bases of the wordnet type.
