We are pleased to announce the release of Glawinette (version 1.1).
Glawinette is a derivational lexicon of French built from the GLAWI machine-readable dictionary. The entries of Glawinette are pairs of morphologically related lexemes like accomplir_V:accomplissement_N. Glawinette provides the word family (morphological family) of each of its entries and a characterization of the derivational relations which the pair of lexemes are in. Relations are described by means of:
* a broad alternation pattern (BAP) consisting in two regular expressions that describe the most general form relation that exists between the two words as ^(.+)r:^(.+)ssement for accomplir_V:accomplissement_N, where the sequence (.+) represents the string accompli;
* a fine-grained alternation pattern (FAP) consisting in two regular expressions that describe a form relation between the two words that uses linguistically motivated derivational exponents such as ^(.+)ir:^(.+)issement for accomplir_V:accomplissement_N, where the sequence (.+) represents the string accompl;
Glawinette contains 156,090 lexeme pairs which fall into 15,843 word families and 5,384 derivational series.
Glawinette is available under a Creative Commons By-SA 3.0 license.
