Modell för beskrivning av kollokationer i ett medicinskt lexikon (MedLex)
The paper presents a pilot study of the treatment of collocations in an electronic medical
lexicon, MedLex, currently under construction at the University of Gothenburg, Department
of Swedish. The lexicon is descriptive and intended to support both reception
and production. The study focuses on noun collocations, especially those which describe
diseases and medical conditions. We present an analysis model based on a combination
of semasiological and onomasiological premises. The model results in a classification
into lexically conditioned collocations and type-related collocations. We also discuss how
medically related collocations may be described in the MedLex lexicon.
