Conference Paper
Full-text available
Expressions with an aspectual variant of a light verb, e.g. take on debt vs. have debt, are frequent in texts but often difficult to classify between verbal idioms, light verb constructions or compositional phrases. We investigate the properties of such expressions with a disputed membership and propose a selection of features that determine more s...

This paper presents a brief overview of research on nominal and verbal multiword expressions in Modern Greek. It does so by linking their findings to theoretical issues raised in the description of multiword expressions more generally, like their semantic gradience, their morphosyntactic fixedness and their grammatical idiosyncrasy as well as their...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Computational approaches to sentiment analysis focus on the identification, extraction, summarization and visualization of emotion and opinion expressed in texts. These tasks require large-scale language resources (LRs) developed either manually or semi-automatically. Building them from scratch, however, is a laborious and costly task, and re-using...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The proposed paper reports on work in progress aimed at the development of a conceptual lexicon of Modern Greek (MG) and the encoding of MWEs in it. Morphosyntactic and semantic properties of these expressions were specified formally and encoded in the lexicon. The resulting resource will be applicable for a number of NLP applications.

Chapter
Full-text available
This paper presents corpus work aimed at manually annotating sentiment expressions in the Greek (EL) sub–corpus of a corpus of movies coupled with both orthographic (EN) transcriptions and subtitles in (EL) and (ES). Our effort involves the treatment of emotion predicates and emotion–related concepts in naturally occurring texts and their integrati...
Article
Full-text available
The present study reports the findings of an investigation on the effect of familiarity on idiom comprehension and interpretation in Greek speaking children aged 7.5 years. The method used is particular enough in that it combines (a) an explanation task (very informative as it is, albeit rather unsuitably hard task for children at that young age),...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We hereby present work aimed at giving an account of Greek verbs denoting emotion that is placed within a larger context, aimed towards defining and describing the semantic field of emotions by means of identifying, selecting, classifying and organizing a core lexicon of emotions in a conceptual Data Base. The ultimate goal is the exhaustive descri...

This paper presents an ongoing effort work focusing on the development of an audiovisual corpus resource and its annotation in terms of sentiments and opinions. A modular annotation schema has been employed based on the specifications of existing schemas and extending or adapting them to cater for the peculiarities of the corpus-specific data.

Article
Full-text available
The present paper contains two distinct yet intricately linked studies concerning idiomatic phrases in Greek: a linguistic study and a psycholinguistic study. The linguistic study aims at investigating the degree of fixedness of idiomatic phrases, through a semantic-lexical categorization of 470 phrases with fixed subject. Three phrase categories w...
Article
Full-text available
This article presents a contrastive study of how we express emotions in Modern Greek and French. We study predicate nouns denoting emotion, such as joie, angoisse, peur, colère, enthousiasme, etc. Our aim is to establish correspondences between the lexicons of emotions of these two languages. Hence, we examine the syntactic and lexical properties o...

This study is part of elaborating a grammar of nouns denoting feelings in Modern Greek, in the Lexicon-Grammar framework. It is about the combinatorial properties of nouns denoting feelings (approximately 85 items) with specific verbs expressing diverse modalities (aspect, intensity, control, manifestation or verbal expression). Having defined thre...

We selected a hundred of nouns denoting emotions () and we came up with three classes of formally defined, according to their syntactic and distributional properties, in the framework of the lexicon-grammar. We also studied the lexical combinatorics between verbs and focusing on such cases characterised by lexical restrictions. French Nous avons sé...
Article
In this article we present the procedure we have followed to construct electronic dictionaries of telecommunication terminology. In view of the double role of terms (words and expressions in a language and at the same time names of concepts), it seemed unavoidable to us that not only the linguistic information necessary for the recognition of terms...
Thesis
Full-text available
Notre travail sur la classification et l'analyse syntaxique des phrases figées s'inscrit dans la perspective de l'élaboration d'un lexique-grammaire du grec moderne, en d'autres termes un dictionnaire syntaxique de cette langue, dans lequel, mot et grammaire du mot étant indissociables, l'unité de base est la phrase élémentaire. Le cadre théorique...
Article
Full-text available
In this article we have stressed the treatment of the genitive case for a syntactic classification of sentences containing frozen complements: the genitive presents a problem to the extent that several syntactic functions can be assigned to it. Thus, on the one hand we examine sentences whose complement in the genitive is frozen and, on the other h...

Syntactic analysis is a key component in many Natural Language Processing applica-tions. This is especially true when consider-ing advanced spelling checkers, where the usage of contextual rules at the syntax level can sig-nificantly increase the spelling error detection and correction capability of such systems. The advantage of the contextual app...

Our goal is to co-author a book about theoretical and practical aspects of lexicology and lexicography, with a focus on electronic lexicography, computational dictionaries and recent advances in the field with the use of Human Language Technology. The book is prepared in the framework of KALLIPOS+ project and is to be used as a textbook in Higher Education. Fotopoulou, A. and Giouli, V. Lexis and Lexicon: Lexicology and Lexicography.
