An lexicon for idiomatic compounds in Turkish

Elif Eyigöz

This work presents and comprises a constraint-based case-frame lexicon for idiomatic compounds headed by verbs in Turkish. The lexicon covers ten Turkish verbs with the highest number of senses to be used in natural language processing applications for representing and resolving senses of idiomatic compounds. This thesis gives detailed instructions, suggests conventions and describes a structure for organizing the data in the lexicon. It also provides a sample lexicon for ten verbs organized according to the structure proposed, in order to form a guideline for future lexicographic work based on this study.
