TitleThe Danish Dictionary at large: presentation, problems and perspectives
AbstractThis paper is both a presentation of the first, completely corpus-based dictionary of Danish and a discussion of some of the general difficulties involved in long, large-scale dictionary projects. The first part of the paper concentrates on features that reflect the editors' descriptivist point of view, i.e. non-standard usage, statistically based collocations and authentic examples, in the second part problems such as finding a common practice in definition writing and sense discrimination, the grouping of tasks and the eternal question of time are discussed. At the end of the paper the outlines of future projects are presented.
