Lecture Summary (11/14/06)

The fifth session had the topic "Lexical databases".

To give us an overview of surface structures Mr Gibbon introduced the OneLook Multiple Dictionary (www.onelook.com) to us. This site gives you the opportunity to search for a certain word and receive entries in several different dictionaries.

Afterwards we concentrated on the deep structure of dictionaries, especially on tables. We learned that a table is in fact the basic form of semasiological dictionaries: the rows are lexical entries with a specific microstructure, the columns are single types of lexical information.

Mr Gibbon showed us how to create a table with Open Office, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or even how to program it using HTML.

For the purpose of getting familiar to the handling of tables we were instructed to create one by ourselves. I decided to list up some of my favorite CDs.
