Lexicon-Grammar, Electronic Dictionaries and Local Grammars of Italian
In this paper we will show how Italian electronic dictionaries have been built within the methodological framework of Lexicon-grammar. We will see the structure of electronic dictionaries of simple and compound words, and we will show how to analyse texts employing these linguistic tools within INTEX, a morphological analyser. INTEX contains a tool which allows to construct local grammars on the model of finite state automata. These grammars can be based not only on words but also on the non-terminal symbols contained in the dictionaries. Finally, we will show how electronic grammars (built with INTEX) interact with dictionaries and allow recognition of sequences of simple and compound words.
