Up: Methodology Task
This task is meant to provide methodological guidelines for building the
consensus. Its role is to define the objectives and methods for the
other tasks and to specify the means of communicating the results of the
Working Group inside each task and to the outside.
An important aim of this task is to define the scope of the EAGLES
standardization entreprise for the Lexicon Working Group, its limits in width
and depth, viz.:
The answers to these questions determine the overall orientation of the
different tasks and the basis for an evaluation framework. In order to perform
the necessary tasks of circulation and integratability checking of the work
done at each linguistic level, the methodology group should be active over the
whole period of the EAGLES exercice.
This report consists of three parts: Objectives, basis for
comparison and presentation of the results.
- exhaustive description vs. basic consensus features
- all languages vs. a restricted list of languages
- empirical observations vs. application/theory-oriented approaches
- redundancy vs. non-redundancy
