Computer Corpus Lexicography

Vincent B. Y. Ooi

Paperback (Print on demand)
£32.00
This book introduces the reader to the changing notions of the lexicon and dictionary-making, using a convergence of perspectives from computational linguistics, corpus linguistics, and computational lexicography/lexicology. The main issues include: the relation between lexicon and corpus; corpus-based lexical modelling of language; the computational storage of the lexicon. From this, the book constructs and applies a framework for lexicon-building to a case study. It also stresses the importance of the Internet and World Wide Web for dictionary research and study.
