The LeGeDe-prototype: The Creation of an Online Dictionary on Lexical Particularities in Spoken German. Current Status and Perspectives.

The article focuses on the LeGeDe third-party funded project and the corpus-based lexicographic prototype on the particularities of spoken German in interaction developed during the project period. The development of a lexicographic resource of this kind builds on the various experiences in the creation of corpus-based online dictionaries (especially at the Leibniz Institute for the German Language, Mannheim) and on methods of corpus-based lexicology as well as interaction analysis. As a multimedia prototype for the corpus-based lexicographic treatment of spoken language phenomena, it occupies an innovative position in the landscape of online lexicography. In the section on the presentation of the LeGeDe-project, the article deals in detail with research questions relevant to the project, the project goals, the corpus data basis and empirically determined expectations of a resource on spoken German. The presentation of the complex structure of the LeGeDe-prototype is illustrated with numerous examples. Apart from the central information on the macro- and microstructure and the lexicographical outer texts, the various linking and access structures are shown. In addition to the final conclusion, the article concludes with an outlook that provides extensive suggestions for future lexicographic work with spoken language corpus data.
