TitleChildren’s Aid to a Children’s Dictionary
AbstractThis paper describes the first lexicographic decisions and the methodology of a linguistic data collection for the editing of a core dictionary as part of a hypermediaI linguistic laboratory for primary school children. It is important to evidence the significant and determining aid the children can give to the compilation of a dictionary designed for their purposes and needs. As a matter of fact, one of the main features of the core dictionary is that the children are not only users of the final product, but also participate in the realization of the tool.
