AbstractDémonette is a morphological lexical database of French organized as a derivational network, in which entries are pairs of words (Word1, Word2) belonging to the same morphological family. An entry is described by 31 fields including:
DescriptionDémonette is a network of derivational morphological relations. This resource is intended to:
Démonette provides as many morphological descriptions for a word as there are relations in which it participates. A word can indeed intervene in several morphological relations with members of its derivational family. These relations can be direct or indirect, ascending and descending, simple or complex. One original feature of Démonette is that it provides each word with a morphosemantic definition for each relations in which it appears.
By design, Démonette is a symetrical network. Each entry connecting Word1 to Word2 corresponds to an entry connecting Word2 to Word1 whose properties are set symmetrically to those of the former (Word1, Word2). Version 1.2 is built from the contribution of three morphological analysis systems: Morphonette, DériF and Verbaction. It contains 96 027 entries that describe morphological relations between 61 822 different lexemes pairs (7816 pairs are described in the three resources, 18 573 in 2 resources and 35 433 in just one). These relations involve the following verb-based suffixed word types :
