Inhoud vak

This course is a thorough introduction to the computational lexicon.
Students learn about the challenges and solutions of representing
lexical knowledge for computational applications. We discuss the most
widely used digital lexicons, their structure, their applications in
(computational) linguistics and in engineering, the relevant linguistic
key concepts. Of course we also have an open eye for the shortcomings of
the lexicons.
Discussing computational lexicons provides a good occasion to discuss
some central linguistic notions like polysemy, semantic relations and
case grammar. Topics will be related to current research at the CLTL.
