Lexical Tools

Knowledge of current tools for building lexicons


Lexicography (creation of dictionaries) is a vast field with many specialties. This competency covers the usage and training of users to use current lexicography tools to create,  fill, edit, and link lexical entries. While a language technologist is expected to teach lexicography tools, lexicography workshops should always be held with a competent linguist familiar with the language family who can help the participants with the details of analysis and classification.

Assessment Criteria: 

Able to consult others in building and using lexicons.
