Korpusbasierte Entwicklung lexikalischer Wissensbasen

Corpus-based development of lexical knowledge bases: the ELWIS project

The ELWIS project ran from January 1992 to December 1994. It was funded by the Land Baden-Württemberg within its Forschungsschwerpunktprogramm. The main goal of the project was to provide an infrastructure for corpus-based lexical studies and to set up a database for the storage of lexical information.

Among the papers produced by the members of the project are the following:

After the end of the project, the ELWIS Tagset was revised in a joint action with the Institut für maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung of the University of Stuttgart. The result is the Stuttgart-Tübingen Tagset (STTS), which has been proposed as the standard tagset for German within the EAGLES project.
