Le Lexique-Grammaire du grec moderne
This text is a survey of works elaborated in the theoretical framework of the Lexicon-Grammar regarding Modern Greek. These works, numerous and varied, concern inflectional morphology, compounds, fixed expressions, functional verbs and other classes like adverbs, conjunctive sentences, determiners or proverbs. The electronic dictionary of Greek is not ready yet, but it is quite far advanced. Morphology is very well covered (12,000 verbs, 53,800 nouns and 35,500 adjectives) as well as the inverse dictionary (180,000 entries). These works regarding not only the general language but also languages for special purposes have a theoretical and also a practical interest for automatic translation and teaching of Greek as a mother or/and as a foreign language.
