Title A Lexicon of Discourse Markers for Portuguese – LDM-PT
Authors Amália Mendes, Iria Del Río Gayo, Manfred Stede and Felix Dombek
Abstract We present LDM-PT, a lexicon of discourse markers for European Portuguese, composed of 252 pairs of discourse marker/rhetorical sense. The lexicon covers conjunctions, prepositions, adverbs, adverbial phrases and alternative lexicalizations with a connective function, as in the PDTB (Prasad et al., 2008; Prasad et al., 2010). For each discourse marker in the lexicon, there is information regarding its type, category, mood and tense restrictions over the sentence it introduces, rhetorical sense, following the PDTB 3.0 sense hierarchy (Webber et al., 2016), as well as a link to an English near-synonym and a corpus example. The lexicon is compiled in a single excel spread sheet that is later converted to an XML scheme compatible with the DiMLex format (Stede, 2002). We give a detailed description of the contents and format of the lexicon, and discuss possible applications of this resource for discourse studies and discourse processing tools for Portuguese.
