1 D-square (D-kwadraat) Digital Databases and Tools for Dutch Dialect Dictionaries Jos Swanenberg, Folkert de Vriend & Roeland van Hout

2 Topics Historical background Overview of project phases Conversion procedures New encoding for data End user access to the data

3 Volumes 1.Agricultural terminology 2.Other technical or craft terminologies 3.Common vocabulary Macro structure WBD & WLD

4 Constituents: -Lexical meaning (title, description of the concept) -Lexical form (‘dutchified’ entry) -Phonetic form -Sources -Geographical code (+ map) Micro structure WBD & WLD

15 1.Conversion to a new format 2.End user access to data 3.Enrichment of data 4.Data management Overview phases D-square

16 Phase 1: Conversion to a new format

17 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)

18 Example from WBD, meikever

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

20 Example XML-encoding … Meikever Bakkertje bakkerke bakkərkə K 178 …

21 Example from WALD

22 Example from dictionary of the dialects of Zeeland

23 Phase 2: end user access to data

24 Small scale survey - Tools: Search engine, Cartographic tool, Format conversions. - Enrichment: POS, morphemes (syllables) - Links to other resources: Other dictionaries, questionnaires, FAND, MAND.

25 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
