Optimizing word sketches for a large lexicographic project

Speaker:
Vladimir Benko
Abstract:
“Word sketches are one-page automatic, corpus-based summaries of a word’s grammatical and collocational behaviour.” (Kilgarriff et al., 2004) Designed by Adam Kilgarriff (Brighton) and implemented by Pavel Rychly and Jan Pomikalek (Brno), Word Sketch Engine (WSE) provides a powerful tool for coping with abundance of corpus data encountered in compiling dictionary entries. Depending on the quality of lemmatization and morphological annotation, WSE can help in analyzing both the frequent and the scarce lexical phenomena found in the corpus. Our presentation will comment on a step-by-step modification of the Word Sketch definitions, so that the resulting Word Sketches would better match the expectations of lexicographers compiling a multi-volume explanatory Slovak dictionary.
