Title L’informatisation du FEW: attentes et modélisation
Abstract The computerisation project of the Französisches Etymologisches Wörterbuch aims at taking this reference dictionary on Romance linguistics out of its current state of underutilization resulting from the complexity of its structures. In view of this, we have submitted on September 2007 a questionnaire designed to better understand the wishes and common practices of FEW users. In the present paper, we examine the first results of the survey and its impact on the future electronic modelisation of the FEW by focusing on cross-searching fields. Implicit information, such as dates, regionalisms or suffixes cannot be found automatically, except by using external tools, that must therefore be taken into account in the computerisation. The solutions considered here do not mean that "classic reading" willbecome obsolete. Nevertheless, we hope that we will be able to give users new ways to get to the dictionary thus allowing a new and more efficient use of the FEW...
