Polish Lexicon-Grammar Development Methodology as an Example for Application to other Languages

Zygmunt Vetulani, Grażyna Vetulani


Abstract
In the paper we present our methodology with the intention to propose it as a reference for creating lexicon-grammars. We share our long-term experience gained during research projects (past and on-going) concerning the description of Polish using this approach. The above-mentioned methodology, linking semantics and syntax, has revealed useful for various IT applications. Among other, we address this paper to researchers working on “less” or “middle-resourced” Indo-European languages as a proposal of a long term academic cooperation in the field. We believe that the confrontation of our lexicon-grammar methodology with other languages – Indo-European, but also Non-Indo-European languages of India, Ugro-Finish or Turkic languages in Eurasia – will allow for better understanding of the level of versatility of our approach and, last but not least, will create opportunities to intensify comparative studies. The reason of presenting some our works on language resources within the Wildre workshop is the intention not only to take up the challenge thrown down in the CFP of this workshop which is: “To provide opportunity for researchers from India to collaborate with researchers from other parts of the world”, but also to generalize this challenge to other languages.
