Dictionaries contain chapters like ordinary books
What is it about?
This paper explains how dictionaries can be seen as books divided into several independent chapters that contain different types of data. The description also explains how these chapters can be arranged and written so that they contain interrelated data and that dictionaries are more than mere lists of words and their explanations.
Why is it important?
This paper emphasizes that dictionaries are complex information tools that contain interrelated text parts that together make up the entire information tool. This is in contrast to the traditional view that dictionaries are mere wordlists.
