Good Dictionary Examples is a technology in Sketch Engine which can identify automatically sentences which are suitable as dictionary example sentences or as teaching examples, i.e. are illustrative and representative. The GDEX can be applied on any concordance. It will sort the lines and will place the ones with the best GDEX score to the top. The GDEX technology evaluates the sentences with respect to their length and complexity, safe topics, the presence of difficult and low-frequency words and other similar criteria specified in the GDEX configuration. more on GDEX

  • glue

    A glue <g/> is a special structure inserted into a corpus to tell Sketch Engine that two tokens, which would otherwise be displayed with a space in between, should actually be displayed without a space. Typically do and n't will have glue between them to be displayed as don't. A glue does not have any other fuction, it is inserted for technical reasons only. It can, however, be used in CQL searches if there is a use case.
  • Grammatical relation

    A grammatical relation, or gramrel, refers to one column in the word sketch. Each column represents a category which displays collocates with the same relation to the search word, e.g. subjects of a verb or modifiers of a noun. Some columns may also display the usage statistics of the search word instead of collocates, e.g. the statistics of noun cases or verbal tenses of the search word.
