Redigeringsprogrammet for Norsk Ordbok 2014. I skjeringspunktet mellom menneskeleg skjonn og automatisering
Norsk Ordbok is to be completed and published by the end of 2014. To meet this demand, the eight
remaining volumes are written into an editor programmc and stored in a database. All information categories
in the dictionary therefore need to be reworked, rcdcfincd and tightcned up in content, and organised
more tightly in relation to othcr catcgories, than what is rcquired in a traditional mam",1.ript. This
article prescnts a survey of the proccss of recreating the dictionary structurc, a process in which onc
must weigh the logical against the practicablc, and deeide which conventions and proccdures can be
automated through the editor programme, and which decisions should be lefl to the human editor. The
main premisc is that the character of Norsk Ordbok must not be altcred. This major dictionary shall,
when completed, gi ve a united view of Norwegian dialccts and Nynorsk standard language.
