AbstractThe relational database of the Dictionary of Flemish Dialects works under Oracle. The WVD input database (bronsoorten = sources) consists of subdatabases of one or more questionnaires. Once all the data have been put into the correct subdatabases, the lexicographer can start compiling the dictionary by selecting the concepts that are to be put in one particular fascicle, e.g. all the selected concepts for 'sheep'. This is done in a new database structure, called 'publications'. After selecting the data from the different sources, the lexicographer automatically can generate a dictionary article with all the results for one concept. From this point onwards, the dictionary article can be compiled and lexicological decisions have to be made. This database also forms the basis for drawing the word maps in MapInfo and for making a text file (‘Wetenschappelijk Apparaat’ (Scientific Database)) in which every entry with the different lexemes for that particular concept is followed by codes that indicate the location of the words.
