Linguistics, Vol.6 No.1 September 2005. -

The present article is an attempt at systemizing the notation and the annotation of

collocations. In spite of the ever increasing number of works devoted to lexicology,

lexicography and, more specifically, phraseology, the question of markers allowing

the extraction of units from their phrasal context and of labels destined to

specify the usage of units in the context of a language is rarely addressed. The authors

and the designers of dictionaries usually develop their own set of markers

and labels in order to satisfy the publishing needs but their use remains seldom

systematized. The present article offers a critical examination of the use of markers

and labels in lexicography and presents the solutions adopted on the matter

within a research project carried out at the University of Nice Pecman 2004a.

The conclusion will put forth the importance of the design of systematic and rational

modelling procedures for the processing of collocational resources.
