Présentation de la classification des Verbes Français de Jean Dubois et Françoise Dubois-Charlier
byJean Dubois and Françoise Dubois-Charlier (1997) is a shorter copy of an electronic dictionary of French verbs. It is a thesaurus of syntactic-semantic classes, i.e. of semantics classes whose scope is defined by syntax. This work registers 25610 entries for 12310 different verbs. So as to elaborate it, the authors used the classical methods of distributional and transformational grammar. After presenting and illustrating the outline of the work, the theoretical principles it is based on are explained. Our third section describes the method underlying the classification. In the last section we display two possible way of accessing the lexical entries. This dictionary represents an outstanding lexicographical corpus with its broad coverage, the various explicit data registered (subcategorization, lexical selection, transformations, semantics, morphology, synonymy, etc.) and its coherent system to classify and code linguistic properties.
