CzeDLex is a new electronic lexicon of Czech discourse connectives. Its
data format and structure are based on a study of similar existing
resources, and adjusted to comply with the Czech syntactic tradition and
specifics and with the Prague approach to the annotation of semantic
discourse relations in text. We first put the lexicon in context of
related resources and discuss theoretical aspects of building the
lexicon. Second, we introduce the chosen technical solution based on the
Prague Markup Language. Third, we describe the process of getting data
for the lexicon by exploiting a large corpus manually annotated with
discourse relations.
