Collocations dictionaries are essential tools to undertake specialized translation and scientific and technical writing. In the ONTODIC II Project we aim to develop a systematic methodology for the elaboration of terminological collocations dictionaries, that is, dictionaries that contain specialized terminology in a knowledge area and which allow the user to access directly to a specific combinatorial structure of a term.

The design of the methodology and the techniques for the elaboration of collocations dictionaries include the following aspects: 1) analysis of linguistic elements in the entries, 2) formalization of these elements in valid structures for any group of terms, 3) implementation of these elements and structures in ontologies so that it proves useful for the creation and design of other dictionaries and the access to data through natural language processing tools.

We follow the Explanatory and Combinatorial Lexicology for the analysis and linguistic formalization of collocations due to the high level of formalization of this theory. This allows a good approach to the implementation of the elements which will be included in the dictionary entries. In order to implement data in an ontology, we use the ontology editor Protégé.
