Designing a derivational resource for non-concatenative Morphology: the Hebrewnette database

Abstract

This paper presents a Derivational Database of Modern Hebrew (and more generally of Semitic languages) called Hebrewnette. The methodology adopted is based on adjusting the structure and properties of a database developed for the description of the derived lexicon of a Romance language (Démonette), and completing it to account for the specificities of the morphology of Semitic languages. We present the properties of Hebrewnette and the type of information in consists of, with special emphasis on both structural and semantic relations between words. Through a case study, we show how the annotations that are used allow us to verify theoretical hypotheses about non-concatenative morphology. The design of Démonette’s annotation system makes its features, initially designed for French, suitable for capturing both morphological and semantic relations between Hebrew words, regardless of the type of morphology (concatenative or non-concatenative).
