What is your project about?
I am working on a project called Croatian Web Dictionary – Mrežnik, which is conducted at the Institute of Croatian Language and Linguistics in Zagreb.
Within the project, a new monolingual web dictionary of the Croatian standard language is being compiled. It will be the first Croatian general monolingual dictionary that has been compiled exclusively as an e-dictionary, taking into account the rules of contemporary e-lexicography and the potential of the digital medium.
The digital form will influence the content of dictionary entries and its presentation to users. For example, in order to fulfill the needs of different user groups, the dictionary entries will contain, besides common definitions, diverse pragmatic information such as collocations and examples of use extracted from Croatian text corpora.
Furthermore, while the resource’s main module that will appeal to adult native speakers of Croatian, there will also be modules for pupils and foreigners.
