Can anyone enlighten me definitively (or refer me to a source) on
distinction between lemma and lexeme?. After reading tons of
all I can think of is that lemma is just the corpus linguists' term
for apparently the same thing - only traditional lexicologists
preferred the term lexeme instead.
AND - does lemmatisation involve any of the disambiguations
(POS, sense, word family assignment) or is it only surface form
based? Do we all do the same when we 'lemmatise'? (I've also
seen the term 'lexematisation' somewhere... Well..)
I've browsed previous discussions on lemmas in the corpora list
archive, but the above doubts have been left unanswered...
