TitleDissecting a dictionary
AbstractThis paper has two main aims. The first is to investigate how a dictionary database for an English-Finnish (E-F) dictionary can be recycled and reused for a Finnish-English (F-E) dictionary by manipulating the original data; the second aim is to study the possibilities which dissecting the dictionary data in various ways will offer to the editors of dictionaries, in other words, the issue is how dictionary content and consistency could be controlled and monitored by means of analyzing the accumulating data and how different dissections of the data could help editors and lexicographers during the compilation process.
