MotÀMot Project: Building a Multilingual Lexical System via Bilingual Dictionaries

Mathieu Mangeot, Sereysethy Touch

Laboratoire GETALP LIG, Grenopble, France

The MotAMot project aims to develop a multilingual lexical network focused on languages of Southeast Asia and especially Vietnamese and Khmer. The macrostructure is a pivot structure with a monolingual volume for each language and a pivot one connecting each word sense of each monolingual volume. The microstructure is based on the explanatory and combinatorial lexicography. Contributions will be made online on the Jibiki platform by a community of volunteers constituted around serious games lexical. Each entry will be given a level of quality, as well as for each contributor.
