TitleFrench Specialised Medical Constructions: Lexicographic Treatment and Corpus Coverage in General and Specialised Dictionaries
AbstractThe aim of this paper is to examine four French dictionaries: the on-line Larousse, the Petit Robert (2009), the Larousse M├ędical, and the TLFi, with regard to the way specialised verbal constructions (extracted from two medical subcorpora which are different according to the level of expertise of their author and readership) are described across the resources. According to our results, specialised verbal constructions are not given an important place in the queried resources, even in the medical dictionaries. Very few of the studied constructions are found in the analysed dictionaries, and those which are presented are not given a homogeneous and proper description.
