Course Description

This course presents the main types of digital lexical resources : electronic dictionaries, lexical databases, both academics (Wordnet, Framenet...) and crowdsourced (Wiktionary...), as well as automatically trained (Word embeddings). We will briefly present how to manage specific challenges (multi-word expressions, out-of-vocabulary words...) and propose practical sessions to exploit such resources in concrete applications. The course is an extension of the basic notions of lexicology introduces in the course unit “Lexicology : lexical units and phraseology” (UE 804).
