TitleExploratory and Text Searching Support in the Dictionary of the Spanish Language
AbstractOnline dictionaries try to include search capabilities to meet most users’ needs. Although users are not always aware of how to effectively use dictionaries, sometimes it is the interface that does not facilitate a friendly access to the dictionary information. This work aims at lowering the barrier in supporting onomasiological and semasiological advanced searches to the Diccionario de la lengua española (DLE) by combining text searches and faceted navigation into a user-friendly dictionary interface, allowing even non-experts to move through the dictionary in a natural and flexible manner. However, since the DLE is an electronic version of a printed dictionary, it contains related and unrelated abbreviations condensing different information that have to be properly converted into the set the facets and values provided by the search system.
