TitleThe Gate to Knowledge in a Multilingual Specialized Dictionary: Using Lexical Functions for Taxonomic and Partitive Relations
AbstractThis paper presents an attempt to computerize an existing (multilingual) specialized dictionary and make it able to highlight all the relationships between terms, i.e., not only interlingual equivalences and synonyms, but also semantic and lexical relationships, such as hyperonymy, meronymy, derivation and combinatorics. Our aim is to give the user access to a maximum of information on these relationships in the most economical way. The method discussed here is the extraction of "Lexical Functions" (LFs) [Mel'cuk et al. 1984, 1995; Wanner 1996]. Our attention will be mainly focussed on taxonomic and partitive relations, ofparticular interest for terminology.
