DanNet: udvikling og anvendelse af det danske wordnet
A wordnet for Danish is under compilation as a joint project between the Centre for
Language Technology at the University of Copenhagen and the Society for Danish Language
and Literature. Both partners have recently been involved in the development of
relevant lexical resources which are utilized as an important part of the current project,
most importantly The Danish Dictionary, a corpus-based dictionary of modern Danish,
and the international SIMPLE project. This article describes how the existing data are
reused to create a much sought-after resource within Danish language technology. Typical
examples and problems faced during the editing process are presented, with focus on
polysemy, synonymy and semantic classification. Finally, we outline some perspectives
for lexicographic products aimed at human users. Specifically, the development potential
for the productive function of dictionaries is discussed, as are ways of improving the
pedagogical function of learners’ dictionaries.
