Abstract and Keywords
With developments in computer technology, the face of dictionary project management has changed almost beyond recognition over the last fifteen years or so. Computational linguists and dedicated software developers, working closely with lexicographers, observing their day-to-day needs while striving towards a richer and more accessible analytical and creative environment, have been instrumental in bringing about these changes, not to mention a significant input from theoretical linguists. Each advance seems to have spawned—and continues to spawn—innovations undreamed of even a few years ago, bringing linguistic and practical resources ever closer to the fingertips of dictionary makers, constantly broadening the horizons of what a dictionary can be. In this chapter, we explore and explain the principal areas in which current systems can facilitate dictionary project management, focusing on how currently available technology can enhance the quality and efficiency of dictionary production.
