2006 (English)In: AMIA 2006 Symposium Proceedings, Washington D.C., USA: AMIA , 2006, 534-538 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present results of the collaboration of a multinational team of researchers from (computational) linguistics, medicine, and medical informatics with the goal of building a multilingual medical lexicon with high coverage and complete morpho-syntactic information. Monolingual lexical resources were collected and subsequently mapped between languages using a morpho-semantic term normalization engine, which captures intra- as well as interlingual synonymy relationships on the level of subwords.
