> A good dictionary is characterized by the following features: broad=20
> coverage (number of entries), rich annotation (a lot of information=20
> associated with each entry) and ease of access of the information.
>
> If electronic dictionaries compare favourably with paper dictionaries=20

> The goal of this special issue is to discuss challenges inherent to=20
> the building and use of electronic dictionaries and approaches and=20
> techniques to address them. We welcome work on any of the following=20
> issues:
>
>   o the problem of building a dictionary (method, know-how);
>   o types of information to be stored in a dictionary;
>   o representation, structuring (indexing) and visualisation of the data;
>   o the problem of accessing information (aids for navigation,=20
> interface, strategies);
>   o acquisition of lexical data (corpus), reuse of existing data;
>   o coherency checking;
>   o problems related to multilinguality;
>   o possibilities given to the user or lexicographer to edit entries=20
> (annotation, updating);
>   o the usage of dictionaries by people (learning/teaching; writing)=20
> and by machines (NLP).
>
> Given the wide spectrum of needs we welcome work from any of the=20
> following perspectives, linguistics, computer science,=20
> psycholinguistics, language learning, ergonomics, etc. provided the=20
> contibution contains a computational element.
