Lexicon TIP
Canonical forms
Derivative relationships


Each infinitive is associated with the same information as the canonical forms and also the following attributes are added: conjugation model, number of conjugated forms, type of irregularity and/or defectiveness if it has one. The grammatical categories considered for the verbs are: transitive, intransitive and pronominal. Infinitives with different grammatical categories are stored in different entries in order to correctly establish derivative, semantic, synonymic, etc. relationships. Also, the conjugation model is a factor that influences when storing the same infinitives with a different conjugation model since it affects the conjugate forms associated with each one. This classification has led, for example, to the following entries in the Lexicon TIP:

Engrosar: Two transitive, two intransitive and two pronominal. This duplicity is due to the fact that this verb admits a regular and an irregular conjugation in all its grammatical categories. All entries have the corresponding attributes and conjugations.

Despelotar: Two transitive and four pronominal. This verb has four different etymologies. A different entry is stored for each grammatical category of each etymology. All entries have the corresponding attributes and conjugations.

Under this criterion the TIP Lexicon consists of:

Infinitives 21 700
Unique infinitives 14 616

And the distribution by grammatical categories is:

Grammatical category Infinitives
Transitives 11 683
Pronominals 5354
Intransitives 4249

Each infinitive has stored all the conjugated forms that correspond to it, regardless of its frequency of use in Spanish. All the irregular bends have associated the type of irregularity that has (orthographic, accentuation, morphological, other) and its frequency in the CREA.
