The Kicktionary : Combining corpus linguistics and lexical semantics for a multilingual football dictionary

  • This paper presents the Kicktionary, a multilingual (English - German - French) electronic lexical resource of the language of football. In the Kicktionary, methods from corpus linguistics and two approaches to lexical semantics - the theory of frame semantics and the concept of semantic relations - are combined to construct a lexical resource in which the user can explore relationships between lexical units in various ways. This paper explains the theoretical background of the Kicktionary, sketches the data and methods which were used in its construction, and describes how the resulting resource is presented to users via a set of hyperlinked webpages.
