TitleMethodological issues of the compilation of the Polish Academy of Sciences Great Dictionary of Polish
AbstractPolish Academy of Sciences Great Dictionary of Polish (pol. Wielki słownik języka polskiego PAN) is being created by a team of linguists, lexicographers and other specialists in The Institute of the Polish Language PAN. This process started in Kraków in 2006. The dictionary is published exclusively in the online format, free of charge. Before August 2018, 70,000entries, which include the most frequent words, idiomatic expressions and proper names of the Polish language, will have been finished. The paper provides a general description of the dictionary and focuses especially on following issues of its compilation: a) workflow and methods of organizing work, b) lexicographical system of the dictionary and some of its innovations, which are useful during the process of entry creation and the process of overseeing the entries by lexicographers, c) a new, introduced in 2015, graphical user interface and its features. The final part is devoted to a short presentation of the plans the team has for the future.
