TitleZooLex: The Wildest Corporate Reference Work in Town?
AbstractThis article discusses the design, development, and implementation of an Intranet-based corporate reference work at Copenhagen Zoo, Denmark. The article outlines the lexicographic considerations made with particular focus on the provision of a plethora of contextual information in addition to conventional lexicographic data to the employees and the Zoo as a communicative entity. Contextual information is particularly important in order to communicate effectively, and the theoretical considerations are illustrated by means of a number of screen shots from ZooLex ver. 2, which was commissioned and implemented at Copenhagen Zoo in September 2005. ZooLex is a multilingual corporate reference work, which, in addition to conventional lexicographic articles, also features automatic access to a plethora of related contextual information from the Internet, the Zoo's Intranet, official national corpora, and company-specific corpora. ZooLex has special focus on zoological terms in five languages (Danish, English, Swedish, German, and Latin).
