Event description

Description

Lexicography is currently embracing rapid change as the traditional methods of publishing dictionaries are replaced by the ubiquity of lexical information on the Web. Furthermore, the application of computational techniques to the process of lexicography are revolutionizing how dictionaries can be constructed. In this context, the recently started ELEXIS project aims to develop a new infrastructure for electronic lexicography across Europe, that builds a virtuous cycle of lexicography where lexicographic resources are linked across languages, in order to build improved natural language processing tools, which can then aid in the construction of novel resources and retro-digitization of dictionaries, thus driving the cycle. The project is naturally multilingual covering 15 European countries and has a strong interest in driving lexicography for under-resourced and minoritized languages.
