|Title||Dutch Lexicography in Progress: the Algemeen Nederlands Woordenboek (ANW)|
|Abstract||The Algemeen Nederlands Woordenboek (ANW – Dictionary of Contemporary Dutch) is a project of the Institute for Dutch Lexicology in Leiden, the Netherlands. It is an online corpus-based, scholarly dictionary of contemporary standard Dutch in the Netherlands and in Flanders, the Dutch speaking part of Belgium. It describes the Dutch vocabulary from 1970 onwards.
The ANW is aimed at a large audience, ranging from professional linguists to students and puzzlers. It provides information on form, content and use of words belonging to the general vocabulary of Dutch. It has an elaborate structure which aims to simplify the retrievability of words and meanings for the user compared to existing digital dictionaries. The semagram plays an important role in this, but so do various other innovative elements in the structure.
