Tilgangs- og henvisningsstruktur i digitale ordbøger Overvejelser baseret på ordnet.dk
The concept of structure cannot be transferred from the printed book to the digital medium:
the alphabetical ordering principle does not apply to a digital dictionary, hyperlinks
are possible in the digital medium only, and conditions of spatial orientation, overview
and browsing are different in the two media. Therefore, a digital dictionary must seek
new solutions to provide user-friendly access to its contents. In this article, the task is
viewed from two angles: Various solutions employed by existing online dictionaries are
analyzed and evaluated as viewed by the user, and from the perspective of the dictionarymaker,
special attention is devoted to the possible need to rearrange the (print-based) data
structure underlying the presentation displayed on the screen.
