Synonymy at the Syntagmatic Level

Synonymy at the Syntagmatic Level

Antoinette Renouf

The corpus-based Cobuild dictionary project represented an early large-scale affirmation of the Firthian theory that part of the sense or meaning of a word is revealed by its neighbours (henceforth ‘collocates’), in a given context.

The fact that collocation is not only an abstract associative relationship, but a regular surface feature of text, traceable along the syntagmatic plane, is rather important, because it makes the semantics of words in text amenable to study, both manually and automatically. It also permits the testing of the hypothesis that words with similar collocational profiles might have similar meanings, or be in some other significant sense relationship.

The existence of lexical collocation, or lexical ‘attraction’ in text, in turn suggests a corresponding phenomenon of lexical ‘repulsion’. Here, the hypothesis is that a word actively does not occur in the environment of another word for some reason, and that repulsion is thus also part of the meaning of a word.

In this paper, I shall show that these wonderfully simple hypotheses are true, and illustrate their power and fascination with examples taken from real language.

Conectores, Corpora, Perspectivas e Problemas

Jorge Campos

Do ponto de vista linguístico, as expressões lexicais mais típicas como fonte de corpora para posteriores investigações são as nocionais, como nomes, adjetivos e verbos. Embora a tradição aristotélica de lógica silogística e a estóica de lógica proposicional tenham aberto o espaço para os estudos sobre elementos sincategoremáticos, a Lingüística como tal não desenvolveu investigações sobre conetivos e quantificadores na mesma intensidade. Recentemente, a interface com a Lógica Informal e com a Computação destaca a importância de tais operadores para a constituição de formalismos relevantes. Que perspectivas e problemas interessantes se encontram na aproximação da parte formal com a Lingüística de Corpus?


From a linguistic point of view, the most typical lexical expressions as a source of corpora for further investigations are the notional ones, such as nouns, adjectives and verbs. Although the Aristotelian syllogistic logic and Stoic propositional logic traditions have opened the space for the study of syncategorematic elements , Linguistics as such has not developed investigations on connectives and quantifiers with the same intensity. Recently, the interface with Informal Logic and Computing highlights the importance of these operators for the provision of relevant formalisms. What interesting perspectives and problems can be drawn from the approximation between such formalisms and Corpus Linguistics?
