Welcome to IDION (ΙΔΙΟΝ in Greek).

IDION is a lexicographic environment for the documentation of idiomatic structures such as

  • έκανα  μαύρα μάτια  να δω  κάποιον
  • I.made black   eyes  to  see  somebody
  • ‘I have not met somebody for a long time’

The technical term “Multi Word Expressions (MWE)” is often used for this type of linguistic structure.

IDION is the result of a group initiative motivated by the European COST Action PARSEME (IC1207 COST Action http://typo.uni-konstanz.de/parseme/). Ιts present version has been developed with the support of the project Philotis.

ILSP/ “Athena” RC kindly hosts IDION.
