The Use of Machine Readable Dictionaries in the Pangloss Project

Stephen Helmreich, Louise Guthrie, and Yorick Wilks

The Pangloss project is founded on an interlingual, knowledge-based approach combined with statistical methods. Automatic acquisition of lexical information is used at all three levels of the initial system: analysis (Spanish), interlingnal/ontological, and generation (English). For this extraction/acquisition task we have used both LDOCE and Collins Spanish-English and English-Spanish dictionaries.
