This paper presents a description of automatic dictionaries (ADs) and dictionary entry (DE) schemes for NLP systems dealing with Oriental languages. The uniformity of the AD organization and of the DE pattern does not prevent the system from taking into account the structural differences of isolating (analytical), aggluti- nating and internal-flection languages. The "Speech Statistics" (SpSt) project team has been designing a linguistic automaton aimed at NL processing in a variety of forms. In addition to Germanic and Romance languages the system under development is to handle text processing of a number of Oriental languages. The strategy adopted by th~ SpSt ~roup is characterized by a lexicalized approach: the NLP algorit}nns for any language are entirely AD dependent, i.e., a large lex...
