TitlePrinciples for encoding machine readable dictionaries
AbstractWe provide an outline of a standard format for encoding machine readable dictionaries, based on work which is ongoing within the dictionary work group of the Text Encoding Initiative. The format is suitable for encoding a wide range of dlctionaries, and is flexible enough to accomodate many esoteric dictionaries as well. It is also suitable for encoding different 'views' of a dictionary simultaneously in the same document, specifically, a view which sees the dictionary in its textual format, and a view which sees the information in the dictionary without concern for its physical rendering.
