Wortgeschichte digital - Digital Word History
The project Wortgeschichte digital (‘Digital Word History’) aims to describe central German words from approximately 1600 up to the present, thereby filling the gap between the lexicography of present day German and the dictionaries of older language periods. As to the methods of dictionary writing, Wortgeschichte digital breaks new ground: Instead of providing a list of lexical meanings and quotations in the traditional way, it presents a word’s history in a short text, which adequately describe the semantic developments and thus make them more comprehensible. At the same time, with the help of digital linking and presentation options, a lexicographic offer is made available that can also appeal to a broader audience.
