We show the initial stage of an incremental on-line multilingual valence pattern demo; presently populated with two languages; Norwegian and Ga. The procedure for establishing the Norwegian part of the valence database resides in reusing material available in the computational HPSGgrammar Norsource; which has a rich array of lexical information; in part developed from earlier existing lexical resources for Norwegian. The procedure used for Ga is based on a Toolbox lexicon for Ga; with a first stage of processing enabling its data to join the conversion strategy used for Norwegian. A common template is used for the valence information display; although neither source fills in the template completely; reflecting their original differences in content. Essential among these is the availability of example sentences illustrating each valence option for each verb ‚Äď this is available for Ga; but not for Norwegian. The results are implemented but not yet widely published; serving at the moment partly for self-improvement through exhibiting weaknesses in the resources from which they were derived; and partly for development of the multilingual design.
