DICTIONARIES   DICTIONARIES

The Lexicala data stem from numerous lexicographic resources compiled by experienced lexicographers at K Dictionaries, for the creation of monolingual, bilingual, multilingual and learner’s dictionaries.

Each dictionary prototype was conceived with its own macrostructure and entry microstructure to serve a unique purpose and satisfy a specific target user group. The following dictionary series are available online, in mobile apps, and in print.

GLOBAL MULTI-LEXIS DATA SERIES

A series of multi-layered lexicographic datasets for 25 languages.

Each language resource is developed from scratch, using a methodology based on corpus evidence and sharing a consistent overall framework and technical infrastructure across all languages.

The underlying monolingual layer can either be used on its own or serve as a base for adding translation equivalents in other languages and producing bilingual and multilingual versions, which can also be cross linked to the other language sets.

  • single word lemmas
  • multiword expressions
  • inflected forms
  • phonetic transcription
  • alternative script
  • definitions
  • examples of usage
  • translation equivalents
  • semantic labels
