Sex-Based Nominal Pairs in the French Lexical Network: It's Not What You Think

Abstract : We examine French nominal pairs of the type BERGER 'shepherd' ~ BERGÈRE 'shepherdess' and CHIEN 'dog' ~ CHIENNE 'bitch dog'. These pairs are considered from the viewpoint of their lexicographic modeling in an Explanatory Combinatorial lexical database: the French Lexical Network (fr-FLN). We first present, in section 1, the linguistic problem we are dealing with; we identify two main types of semantic relations involved in these lexical pairs: sex-based quasi-synonymy--that is analyzed in detail in section 2--and sex-based contrastive opposition--dealt with in section 3. As conclusion, section 4, we look at the implications of our modeling of such relations on the graph structure of the fr-FLN.
