WikiLexicographica. Linking Medieval Latin Dictionaries with Semantic MediaWiki

Abstract : The paper demonstrates results of the survey of which the main aim was to scrutinize consequences of adopting wiki model in alignment of medieval Latin dictionaries. In the first section, the objectives of the project as well as its methodology are presented. As a framework Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) has been chosen. For the purpose of the research several entries from four dictionaries were selected. In the following chapters authors scrutinize presentation, search, and collaboration features provided by SMW. Authors demonstrate how intrinsic wiki concepts, such as namespaces, templates, property-value pairs etc., may be employed in macro-and microstructure display. Next, alternative modes of accessing lexicographical data are presented such as maps, timelines, charts etc. After that search capabilities are analysed, among which the most important appear to be semantic properties search and faceted browsing. Lastly, the paper focuses on different ways SMW can encourage researchers to collaborate and enrich dictionary content.
