The ELEXIS Curriculum is an integrated set of training materials which contextualizes ELEXIS tools and services inside a broader, systematic pedagogic narrative. This means that the goal of the ELEXIS Curriculum is not simply to inform users about the functionalities of particular tools and services developed within the project, but to show how such tools and services are a) embedded in both lexicographic theory and practice; and b) representative of and contributing to the development of digital skills among lexicographers.
The goal of this course is to introduce a brief history of dictionaries as tools for the organization of knowledge about words and their meanings, and to analyze different ways of understanding and classifying the dictionary genre.
The goal of this course is to introduce students to the important role played by dictionary usage research when developing and implementing new dictionaries.
This course will explore the notion of lexicographic evidence and the limitation of subjective views on language by tracing the changes in lexicographic practice from the extensive use of manually selected citations to the employment of large language corpora.
This course will introduce the theories, practices, and methods of digitizing legacy dictionaries for research, preservation and online distribution by focusing on the process of converting paper-based dictionaries to electronic format through image capture, text capture, data modeling and data enrichment.
The course will introduce corpus tools available in ELEXIS and describe various ways in which they can be exploited in lexicographic research and for compiling dictionaries.
The course will explore how software tools for dictionary production (so-called dictionary writing systems, or DWS) can be used to streamline and facilitate the structural coherence and quality assurance in a dictionary project by focusing on Lexonomy, a dictionary-writing system developed as part of ELEXIS.
Building upon the material covered in LEX2: Mastering ELEXIS Corpus Tools for Lexicographic Purposes and Lexonomy: Mastering the ELEXIS Dictionary Writing System, this course will focus specifically on the changes in dictionary production after 2000 and the increasing importance of automation and post-editing in lexicography.
This course will present an overview of resources available from CLARIN that may be useful for the lexicographer; we refer to lexical datasets but also to textual resources such as corpora, as well as tools.
This course focuses on the importance of standards to facilitate the cooperation among lexicographers in a multilingual and multicultural context.
The course will focus on modeling dictionaries using TEI Lex-0, a subset of the community standard TEI (Text Encoding Initiative).
This course describes the OntoLex-Lemon model, a recent standard for the representation of lexical information on the Web as linked data.
This course introduces Elexifier, a cloud-based dictionary service for the conversion of legacy XML and PDF dictionaries into a shared data format based on the ELEXIS Data Model.
This course introduces Publex, a modern, generic, modular dictionary publication tool for retrodigitized / legacy dictionaries.
This course explores the principles of open access, open data, FAIR principles and open science as they apply to lexicography including the specific challenges posed by intellectual property rights and copyright issues in the context of lexicographic work.
This course will introduce the concept and the ELEXIS implementation of the dictionary matrix, a universal repository of linked senses, and other types of lexical information found in existing lexicographic resources.
This course will help users learn how to use oXygen XML, a versatile, professional-grade XML editor to edit, validate, query and transform lexicographic data.
XPath (XML Path Language) is a standard query language for selecting nodes from XML documents. In this step-by-step tutorial, you will learn how to write XPath expressions in order to navigate around our XML-encoded dictionaries and select only those bits of data that you are interested in.
The course builds upon Extracting Lexical Data: XPath for Dictionary Nerds and introduces the basics of XSL Transformations (XSLT), a standard language for transforming XML documents.
This learning resource provides software developers and computational linguists with an overview of the typical computational processing tasks and software tools in the lexicographic workflow. The resource introduces the most widely used custom developed tools for corpus-based lexicography as well as their functionality.
