TitleAdding Electronic Value. The electronic version of the Grote Van Dale
AbstractThe paper describes the design features of the elektronische grote van dale or EGVD , i.e. the electronic version of the most authoritative dictionary of contemporary Dutch. A comparison between the EGVD and existing dictionaries on cd-rom leads to an identification of the innovative characteristics of the EGVD. Ranking high among these are a fully developed onomasiological search function, the layered representation of entries, and the use of generated speech for the multimedia representation of pronunciation. The design features of the EGVD are analyzed from a functional perspective: what functional advantages can electronic dictionaries achieve, in comparison with the paper dictionaries that they are based on?
