WO4: General Issues On Lexicons
This paper describes the Lexicographic Station Development Platform and how it has been used to implement the resulting lexicon guidelines and standards generated by ISLE Computational Lexicon Group in a prototype tool for lexical encoding. The aims of the work described here were to (i) exemplify and disseminate the Multilingual ISLE Lexical Entry (MILE) using an actual model and available monolingual data (ii) make extensive use of already existing PAROLE and SIMPLE lexicons and (iii) to eventually test the goodness of the guidelines by using a real scenario. To cope with these aims, the LSDP was designed as a tool generator which could automatically generate a prototype lexicographic station out of ISLE guidelines when formally expressed in a DTD. Thus, we have tested and exemplified the recommendations expressed in MILE but in addition we have also proved that MILE can be implemented on already existing monolingual resources.
