Building a medical Spanish lexicon

AMIA Annu Symp Proc. 2007 Oct 11;941.


We are developing a freely available Spanish medical syntactic lexicon, initially populated with medical terms from a bilingual list, and then from corpus based term discovery. The lexical records are a simplification of the SPECIALST English lexicon. Lexical variant generation and normalization tools will be provided along with the lexicon.
