The input for the lexical specifications and classification for French, in terms of the inventory and labels of the part of speech categories and morphosyntactic features, comes from the EAGLES synopsis and comparison of morphosyntactic phenomena (EAGLES, 1996).
In conformity with the general structure for the guidelines adopted for morphosyntactic phenomena, we devote a section to each main part of speech (pos) category, that is to nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, determiners, pronouns, articles, adpositions, conjunctions, interjections, unique members and residuals.
As for numerals, we distribute these over the three categories determiners, adjectives and pronouns, according to their possible syntactic distributions. We recall that EAGLES leaves open the treatment of numerals either in an independent part of speech category numeral or in the respective relevant categories determiner, adjective and pronoun (Calzolari & Monachini, forthcoming, 217).
Each major section contains the following:
In appendix , we provide a wordform index which includes all wordforms used as examples for the application of the different linguistic tests, or those forms that are used as examples in the confusion tables.
Also, table 1 offers a means of rapidly finding the main section for each part of speech, its associated type hierarchy table and its associated confusion tables.
