The resources would be linked by normalizing the headwords from the ONP to the standard used for Modern Icelandic spelling by the use of a spellchecker originally de-signed for use on Modern Icelandic. This is possible, as the major differ-ences in word forms between the two sources are mostly a matter of changes in spelling, whereas the morphology of Icelandic has been rela-tively unchanged through the centuries. Future work would consist of normalizing the citation collections themselves, thus creating a valuable resource linking variant word forms to their headwords or lemmas.</p> 2018-11-29T11:01:51+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## LEXIN i Norge – Hva sier brukerne? 2018-12-06T12:11:08+01:00 Tove Bjørneset <p>The original Swedish dictionary series LEXIN was launched in the 1980's, designed specifically for minority language immigrants living in Sweden. In 1996, The Norwegian Ministry for Education, Research and Church Affairs initiated a corresponding Norwegian project at The Norwegian Term Bank. The project has since continued in the same environment. At present it is a part of the university-owned company Uni Research, and it is owned and funded by The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training (Utdanningsdirektoratet). The Norwegian series consists of dictionaries from Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk into 16 target languages, and more languages are forthcoming. Since the launch in 2002 the dictionary users have been able to contact the project group directly through the project's website. The user dialogue has proven to be of great value. Two user surveys have also contributed to improve our knowledge about the user needs and about how they benefit from using Norwegian LEXIN.</p> 2018-11-29T11:07:16+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Indexeringen av SAOB 2018-12-06T12:11:09+01:00 Erik Bäckerud <p>We are creating a new digital version of the Swedish Academy dictionary, SAOB.

Following ODT’s online launch in October 2014 which received a lot of attention in Danish media, the ODT team decided to create a Facebook (FB) page for the project as well. This article describes the process of developing an explicit strategy for integrating the FB page and its audience into the work of the team, and how to differentiate between and manage two different platforms, namely the website and the FB page. Early on, the scope was to generate more traffic to the ODT website. However, due to FB having such a vast user group and being a different type of medium altogether, it became necessary to broaden that initial scope. Analyzing Facebook statistics, developing a strategy for publishing updates and particularly a decision to modify the very academic language of the website to better suit the FB format, all proved fruitful in generating FB traffic, if not traffic directly to the website. Thus, FB has become a separate channel of distribution, parallel to that of the website, but – at least potentially – reaching a much wider audience.</p> 2018-11-29T11:29:45+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Hvordan har netbrugernes præference for forskellige emnespecifikke ordbøger ændret sig i perioden 2006-2014? 2018-12-06T12:11:14+01:00 Poul Hansen <p>The demand for 38 bilingual Danish/Swedish online dictionaries in the period 2006-2014 was statistically investigated.

The problems that are used as examples are drawn from the Finnish version of the Icelandic-Scandinavian webdictionary Islex. In the article, we show how structural differences between the Scandinavian languages and Finnish call for special solutions in the Finnish edition. A special focus is on expression of ownership, problems that arise when lexical items are used without a context, and negations.</p> 2018-11-29T11:36:27+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Bruk av digitale ordbøker i norsk skule 2018-12-06T12:11:17+01:00 Marit Hovdenak Ingunn Indrebø Ims <p>This article presents the material from an online survey in 2014 which reveals if, how and in what way teachers and their students in the Norwegian schools use and relate to monolingual online dictionaries in Norwegian. 487 teachers and 5172 students from all over Norway responded to the survey.

Firstly, the article briefly explains why the topic of cooperation with experts has not attracted the attention it deserves: this is due to the side effects of what might be called general language lexicographic hegemony, in which a strong consensual focus is awarded to general language dictionaries and to knowledge of language. Secondly, the article briefly refers to a few case studies of lexicographic cooperation – and of its counterpart, absence of cooperation. Finally, a cooperation model is presented on the basis of two closely related cooperation theses. It is concluded that lexicography could benefit from a greater interest in specialised lexicography in order to adequately meet the knowledge needs of dictionary users in the modern knowledge and information society.</p> 2018-11-29T11:46:32+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Den Danske Ordbog som app – hvorfor og hvordan? 2018-12-06T12:11:22+01:00 Henrik Lorentzen Nicolai Hartvig Sørensen Lars Trap-Jensen <p>In addition to the existing online version, The Danish Dictionary was published as an app in May 2013. This paper sums up the considerations of the team who created the contents and design of the app. It attempts to explain why the app came to look the way it did by examining e.g. how the technical platform affects usage, how navigation can be optimized on a device with no physical keyboard, and what functionalities should be given priority in the app. The relatively small screen size of a handheld device, as compared to a laptop or desktop computer, forced the team to prioritize and include only the essential content elements. Financial constraints also played a role, and the paper discusses the consequences of a tight budget. Finally, the paper takes a look at other apps for future improvements, and considers the recommendations given in a critical review that followed.</p> 2018-11-29T11:49:27+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Gamle ordbøker og digitale utgaver 2018-12-06T12:11:24+01:00 Christian-Emil Smith Ore <p>Today it is relatively easy to re-publish old dictionaries on the web based on retro digitized text.

En utvärdering av ordbokens sökfunktioner 2018-12-06T12:11:25+01:00 Caroline Sandström Carola Åkerlund <p>The study examines the various search possibilities in the e-dictionary Ordbok över Finlands svenska folkmål (Dictionary of Swedish Dialects in Finland) published in 2013. The dictionary project was initiated as early as in the middle of the 20th century, and the concrete editing process started in the 1960s; by 2007 four volumes of the dictionary had been published. To evaluate the search function we examine how a group of derivational suffixes, i.e. -are, -bla, -dra, -el, -er, -ing, -lla, -ska, -ssa, -us, are distributed in the e-dictionary, according to their geographical spread and semantic differences. Our results show that the search function developed for the dictionary is a helpful and efficient tool for finding patterns in the distribution of derivational suffixes, but for some purposes the search results need to be further analyzed manually.</p> 2018-11-29T11:54:56+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Den mobile ordbogsbruger 2018-12-06T12:11:27+01:00 Henrik Køhler Simonsen <p>People are already mobile – but is lexicography as a discipline up for the mobile challenge?

Often these sources escape the at-tention of the modern user, although they could be valuable tools in many situations. There can be several reasons for this: complicated access, poor readability (e.g. a complex entry structure that might work as a deterrent), or just pure coincidence. The Society for Danish Language and Literature has digitised and published a series of historic dictionaries. In this paper, we briefly describe these resources, and we give an account of our attempt to promote them via social media and by connecting the diction-aries to the more popular website of the modern Danish dictionary, Den Danske Ordbog. We argue for a network solution where a lookup is per-formed within a specific dictionary, but with direct links to other relevant dictionaries added. Finally, we outline our plans for future enhancement of the links through manually curated lemma linking across dictionaries.</p> 2018-11-29T11:59:43+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Stamtræer og digitale etymologiske ordbøger 2018-12-06T12:11:30+01:00 Seán D Vrieland <p>Presentation of etymological information in dictionaries varies widely, making it difficult to propose a standard form of encoding this information in the process of digitization. The following proposes an extension of the TEI P5 standard for encoding texts using XML, wherein a new element &lt;etymon&gt; is able to nest recursively, thereby allowing the XML format to match that of a language family tree. Problems of reconstructed proto-forms, loanwords, and language grouping are further discussed.</p> 2018-11-29T12:02:19+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Konventionelle figurative enheder (idiomer) i Jysk Ordbog og andre større ordbøger 2018-12-06T12:11:04+01:00 Torben Arboe <p>Inside the framework of cognitive linguistics and lexical semantics the study employs a theory of conventional figurative units, e.g. metaphors and similes, based on a conceptual theory of metaphors. The lexical mate-rial is found in the card index and files of the Jysk Ordbog (Dictionary of the Jutland Dialects); it consists of idioms from a broad range of seman-tic fields, arranged in oppositions as 'richness vs. poorness', 'cleverness vs. foolishnes', and it covers especially topic groups of the daily work and life on farms, in villages etc. of the countryside. The study shows how the idioms are treated in the entries of Jysk Ordbog, and special attention is given to instances of polysemy due to figurative use of word; this may require addition of a submeaning to a lexical entry. The results are sum-marized in an overview chart for the key lexemes of the idioms in the re-spective semantic fields.</p> 2018-11-29T12:40:27+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Dansk og norsk i norske ordbøker 2018-12-06T12:11:07+01:00 Sturla Berg-Olsen Daniel Gusfre Ims <p>Norsk Ordbok, a 12 volume scholarly dictionary of the Nynorsk written language and all Norwegian dialects, was completed in 2015 and launched in March 2016.

I clarify the concepts of ’equivalent’, ’false synonyms’, ’genuine synonyms’, and ’maximal synonyms’, and state that, generally, our users only need one equivalent, the best, and that more than one is pedagogi-cally and economically harmful. The L1 speaker only needs one expres-sion for his concrete translation. He does not speak in synonyms (“my steed and horse”). The passive L2 speaker and the active L2 speaker only want to understand. One equivalent will suffice. They do not need to be informed of alternative expressions in their own mother tongue. Later, I sketch where it is useful to give several equivalents. And in the end I seek to answer why the one word ideal is not as popular as it ought to be.</p> 2018-11-29T12:50:24+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Inventariografi og andre nyere tilgange til leksikografi 2018-12-06T12:11:10+01:00 Ken Farø <p>This article presents an analysis of four recent approaches to lexicogra-phy, whose common denominator is method radicalism, namely (1) The Corpus Method, (2) The Function Doctrine, (3) User-driven lexicogra-phy, and (4) Inventoriography. An inventoriographic approach to list-oriented language description, where language lexicography represents a significant, but not sufficient pillar, hails the slogan “Back to language”, i.e. a type of lexicography that to a larger extent than the existing focuses on the description of individual linguistic categories and their complete inventory. A few examples of inventories are the prepositions, text genres, names, book titles, phonemes, templates, discourses etc. – in other words: a great task. It is an intrinsic part of Inventoriography to avoid artificial boundaries between lexicography, encyclopediography and grammaticography.</p> 2018-11-29T12:52:39+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Hvordan slippe inn i Platons hage? – Om kartlegging og dokumentasjon av norsk akademisk vokabular 2018-12-06T12:11:12+01:00 Ruth Vatvedt Fjeld Arash Saidi <p>In the last few years several dictionaries of academic words have been developed, especially for English, but also for other languages, based on automatic analysis of academic corpora.

In Sweden, the urban vernacular has tradi-tionally been described as a youth language, and, as such, studied as a part of an (ephemeral) youth culture. However, both internationally and in Sweden there are claims to treat the urban vernacular as an urban dia-lect or ethnolect.

In 2006, the 13th edition appeared. The second, third, fourth and fifth editions were more or less reprints of the first edition. Thus, the 2006 edition may be regarded as the ninth (au-tonomous) SAOL edition. The most important parts of these nine edi-tions, especially the complete sets of lemmas, have been transformed into a database. The database may be thought of as a matrix with more than 200 000 rows and eleven columns (the nine SAOL editions plus the Dalin dictionary, plus a column to the left with all lemmas that have occurred in at least one SAOL edition). The interface is very flexible, allowing the inclusion of other dictionaries. From each square of the matrix there is a link to a facsimile version of the full corresponding dictionary article.

This article describes the process of how Icelandic synonyms can be extracted and grouped together by using the TLs’ equivalents. Each word class is processed independently. Selected material, a list of lemmas with their ID number plus their TLs, is exported from the database, going through the languages one at a time. This produces long lists of results which consist of the Icelandic headwords and their equivalents. The lists are then processed in certain ways. In cases where a lemma has more than one sense there is a danger that the boundaries between the senses become blurred so that the words in those groups tend to get mixed up. An example is the Icelandic noun verslun which means both ’shop’ and 'trade’, and is therefore divided into two senses in the dictionary. All the material comes from within the dictionary and no external data is used. It means that all the synonyms obtained in this way are necessarily also lemmas. Despite this we consider the method justifiable because it is quick and simple, and in many instances it gives very good results, i.e. groups of synonyms with varying degrees of exactness.</p> 2018-11-29T13:11:01+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## En kognitiv semantisk analys av SAOB:s formler för betydelseförändring 2018-12-06T12:11:21+01:00 Pär Nilsson <p>In my dissertation the method to describe semantic change used in the Swedish Academy dictionary (SAOB) is compared with cognitive semantic models of such a change. The work of SAOB is theoretically unbound in terms of overarching semantic theories, and the methods of describing word meaning and semantic change in the dictionary are rather developed for pragmatic reasons (such as consistency and economy etc.). The first volume of SAOB was published in 1898 and the latest in 2012. A lot has happened during this time within lexicographic theory as well as in general linguistics. To SAOB editors today the view of language and linguistics is to a large extent unlike the one the editors had in the late nineteenth century. Despite this fact the principles behind structuring and representing semantic information in the dictionary seem to have a lot in common with the theory based discussion in contemporary literature in the cognitive field. My starting point is to analyze the structure of articles in SAOB, in particular the use of specific labels used in the definitions, such as bildl. (figurative), utvidgdad anv. (extended use) etc. My aim is to evaluate the pragmatic SAOB model and to investigate to what extent it can be interpreted to represent the way humans structure and categorize language and linguistic meaning. In this presentation I will demonstrate examples of how the SAOB method can be transferred to and interpreted through models derived from cognitive semantics.</p> 2018-11-29T13:13:12+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## NAOB: På vei mot en nasjonalordbok for bokmålet: Nyordprosjektet ”2014 nyord i 2014” 2018-12-06T12:11:23+01:00 Carina Nilstun <p>This article reports from the campaign ”2014 neologisms in 2014”, con-ducted by the editors of The Norwegian Academy’s Dictionary (NAOB), as a step towards publishing a national dictionary for the Norwegian variety bokmål.

Large groups of near-synonymous verbs and verbal nouns, including multiword units, within the domains of communication and cognition are identified and extracted from the source manuscript of a newly published Danish the-saurus. Each word or expression is then assigned an appropriate frame from BFN. The fact that words within the same domain all belong to a manageable subset of frames in BFN makes is possible to map a high number of words to their corresponding frames simultaneously. In a forthcoming annotation project where words within the same two do-mains are already identified in the corpus, the idea is to pre-annotate with the frames in our lexicon, leaving afterwards human annotators to con-firm the frame and test whether it is possible to identify the BFN seman-tic roles described for English in the Danish text. Our method reveals some interesting divergences between the semantic divisions established in the thesaurus in contrast to the ones found in BFN, showing that the two resources contribute with different types of linguistic information and thereby constitute a useful supplement to one another.</p> 2018-11-29T13:17:22+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Betydningsinventarer – i ordbøger og i løbende tekst 2018-12-06T12:11:26+01:00 Bolette Sandford Pedersen Sanni Nimb Anna Braasch Sussi Olsen <p>We examine a set of highly polysemous nouns in Danish in order to un-derstand how well word senses in Den Danske Ordbog (DDO) and the Danish wordnet, DanNet, correlate with the meanings found in examples of running text.

To this end, we anno-tate a corpus with a full sense inventory from DDO and compare with the annotations provided on the basis of a clustered inventory derived auto-matically from DDO and DanNet’s ontological classes. The results show that our hypothesis of clustered senses being more manageable and providing higher annotation agreement (apart from what can be expected from a higher chance agreement when there are less annotation options), holds for a vast majority of the studied cases. Further, the investigations provide a valuable assessment of the organization of senses in the studied dictionaries.</p> 2018-11-29T13:19:58+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Rietz och riksspråket 2018-12-06T12:11:28+01:00 Eva Thelin <p>The most recent dialect dictionary covering all Swedish dialects appeared in 1862–67, published by Johan Ernst Rietz. In those days, dialect dic-tionaries only consisted of words which did not appear in standard Swe-dish. Rietz, though, does include some standard words and in the fore-word to the dictionary he specifies his criteria for entering them. In this article I examine what standard words Rietz has actually included (based on the words beginning with h-) and how well they correspond to his cri-teria.</p> 2018-11-29T13:21:47+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Vilka dialektord kvalar in i en standardspråklig ordlista? 2018-12-06T12:11:29+01:00 Lena Wenner <p>This paper describes the work behind deciding which dialect words should be included in the Swedish Academy Glossary (SAOL) 14. All 500 dialect words in the glossary of SAOL 13 were examined and pre-sented in 10 Internet-based questionnaires containing 50 words each. For each word, informants were asked if they knew it and whether they used it themselves. As a result, it is suggested that 100 words should be de-leted; either because they are too dialectal and only have a limited geo-graphical distribution, or because they nowadays are part of Standard Swedish. In addition, it is suggested that 14 dialect words that have not previously been included, should be incorporated in the glossary.</p> 2018-11-29T13:25:46+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Konferenceprogram 2018-12-06T12:11:31+01:00 - Redaktionen 2018-11-29T13:28:06+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
