TitleTurning a dictionary around – Norsk Ordbok 2014
AbstractThe author presents the new project Norsk Ordbok 2014 which has been organized around the old scientific dictionary Norsk Ordbok, one of two national dictionaries in Norway. Since 2002 the dictionary has been reorganized, and the paper presents the new management, the work done to computerize the editorial routines and the challenges connected to the training of new editors, in order to meet new strict deadlines, the management of the dictionary has been strengthened, thus enabling much closer planning. The computerization scheme is ambitious, and the ultimate goal is fully integrated digital editing routines. Archives, corpus and to some extent also literature are accessible on screen, and the analysis of relevant material is done on a digital desktop. Finally, the dictionary entry is written into an input form where preset menus help the editors getting the structure and formal layout of the article right. The paper concludes by discussing the effects of the reorganization on the dictionary itself.
