AbstractThe “WSK” is a German online dictionary series which will be published in print in 2019/2020. Each of the dictionaries is a terminological special field dictionary on the subject of “Linguistics and Communication Science”. The dictionaries will be partially translated to English, are intended for experts and semi-experts, and they will serve for comprehension of technical terms, information, and translation. Currently, 25 dictionaries are envisioned for the series, which will contain more than 50,000 lemmas. Eleven thousand of these dictionary articles have been published online since 2013.
