Title An Author’s Dictionary: The Case of Karel Čapek
Abstract After a brief reminder of the long tradition of manually-based author's dictionaries, the possibility of a dictionary based on a full corpus and verified in a number of aspects against a large corpus has re-emerged. Specifically, the plan of Karel Čapek's dictionary and its realisation is being discussed and its final shape shown, having a number of new, hitherto unused features. The Dictionary, being in fact split into four separate ones, is accompanied by the full Čapek's corpus on a CD where a lot of additional information can be found.
