1st meeting of the DISSE Working Group

A meeting for the presentation of the DISSE (Diccionario Sintáctico y Semántico del Español Actual) was held at the UNED in Madrid on April 18th, 2008. The meeting was organized by Rocío Jiménez (UAM), Ricardo Mairal and Beatriz Pérez (UNED) and was attended by LEXICOM members from the Universities of Castellón, Córdoba and Castilla-La Mancha.

The DISSE dictionary is a lexicographic application of the Lexical Constructional Model and it can be traced back to a work proposal made a year ago by Rocío Jiménez, Francisco Gonzálvez, Ricardo Mairal, Francisco Ruiz de Mendoza, Carlos Segade and Beatriz Pérez. The dictionary has an onomasiological layout and it has been devised not only to decode but also to code meaning.

In this meeting we have dealt with a document based on the original proposal, together with a protocol for the elaboration of lexical entries.
Also three working groups have been set up that will elaborate the following entries: ENTENDER, COMPRENDER, PENSAR, VER, MIRAR, QUERER and GUSTAR
The second working meeting will take place in Madrid, the 9th of June, 2008 where the results will be presented.
