Overview phases d square

Overview phases D-square

  • Conversion to a new format

  • End user access to data

  • Enrichment of data

  • Data management


D square d kwadraat

Phase 1: Conversion to a new format


Reasoning behind new encoding

Reasoning behind new encoding

  • XML, not relational database

  • Tailored to WBD and WLD

  • Flexible enough to be used for other dialect dictionaries

  • Based on standard: LMF (ISO TC 37/SC 4)


Example from wbd meikever

Example from WBD, meikever


Example from database meikever eng maybug1

Example from database: “Meikever” (Eng: “maybug”)


Example xml encoding

Example XML-encoding

<LEXICON dialect="Brabants">

<ENTRY>

<META>

</META>

<CONCEPT lang=“dutch” ontol_id=“492”>Meikever</CONCEPT>

<DATA>

<VARIANT type=“heteronym”>Bakkertje

<VARIANT type=“lexical”>bakkerke

<VARIANT type=“raw” import=“diplomatic”>bakkərkə

Phase 2: end user access to data


Small scale survey

Small scale survey

  • - Tools: Search engine, Cartographic tool, Format conversions.

  • Enrichment: POS, morphemes (syllables)

  • - Links to other resources: Other dictionaries, questionnaires, FAND, MAND.


Difficulties to overcome

Difficulties to overcome

  • Search engine

    • Getting from question to query (coaching needed). Is SmartMatch (fuzzy matching) helpful in this regard?

    • Speed of XML searching

  • Cartography

  • Availability of base maps

  • Links to other resources

  • Differences in interpretation
