G.E.R.L. Structure


The G.E.R.L. structure is the following:

  • Morphology:
    • Part of speech
      • Noun: type, gender, number, case, morphological segmentation (suffixes, prefixes)
      • Verb: type, mode, tense, voice, number, a way of mentioning if it is with particle or not (German and English)
      • Pronoun: type, person, gender, number, case
      • Adjective: gender, number, case, degree of comaprison
      • Article: gender, number, case, type
      • Adverb: degree of comparison
      • Numeral: type
      • Preposition
      • Conjunction
      • Verb particle: for English and German
  • Syntax:
    • Cases for prepositions
    • Main/subordinate sentences for conjunctions and verbs
    • Personal/not personal verbs
    • Transitive/intransitive verbs
    • Mass nouns, nouns with only singular, or plural, or uncountable nouns
  • Semantics:
    • Synonyms
    • Thematic roles for verbs
    • Collocations
    • A way of mentioning if a word is a foreign word or not

G.E.R.L. is thought to be a full-form lexicon. In case of compound words, all the words in the compound one should be already in the dictionary. The part of speech for a compound word is the one of the MAIN word. In case of no possibility of connection between the languages it is said that is a lexical gap.
