The Lexicographic Treatment of Quantitative Pronouns in Zulu

  • G-M de Schryver


Abstract: In Zulu, there are three kinds of quantitatives: inclusive, exclusive and numeral. For the lemmatization of these, even existing traditional dictionaries felt the need to move away from a pure 'stem' approach towards a 'word' approach. In a new Zulu–English dictionary project, this is not only confirmed, but is taken one step further with particular attention to the microstructure. Keywords: LEXICOGRAPHY, DICTIONARY, BILINGUAL, CORPUS, LEMMATIZATION, FREQUENCY, ZULU (ISIZULU), ENGLISH, QUANTITATIVE PRONOUN, INCLUSIVE QUANTITATIVE PRONOUN, EXCLUSIVE QUANTITATIVE PRONOUN, (INCLUSIVE) NUMERAL QUANTITATIVE PRONOUN, USER-FRIENDLY
