Le lexique-grammaire des verbes du grec moderne: les constructions transitives locatives standard

Abstract : The object of the research is the formal and systematic description of Modern Greek verbs entering into a transitive locative standard construction: N0 V N1 cor Loc N2 place (Loc N3 place), in which the noun in direct complement position (N1) denotes, in essence, the object that is transposed by an agent (N0) from or/and to a certain place (N2, N3). Our study is based on the syntactical framework of the Transformational Grammar defined by Zellig S. Harris. We followed the Lexicon-Grammar (L-G) methodology framework developed by Maurice Gross and elaborated at the LADL (Laboratoire d'Automatique Documentaire et Linguistique). Our aim is the exhaustive description of Modern Greek in the prospect of the automatic analysis of the language. Therefore, 931 simple verbs are classified in 5 L-G tables: 38GLD: constructions with a "goal" prepositional complement; 38GLS: constructions with a "source" prepositional complement; 38GL: constructions with a "goal" and a "source" prepositional complement; 38GLH: constructions with a locative prepositional complement and an obligatory "human" direct complement; 38GLR: residual transitive locative constructions. We discuss the morphological, syntactical and semantic description of prepositions introducing locative complements, and the principal transformational and distributional properties of transitive locative verbs. Moreover, we exhibit the automatic conversion of Greek L-G tables to finite state automata in the field of Natural Language Processing. Finally, we present our first remarks on the translation of Greek locative constructions into french, based on the syntactical and semantic features figuring in the L-G tables.
