The Internet has become the central publication platform for dictionaries. This profound change in the dictionary landscape gives rise to a whole range of new questions for lexicographic practice and dictionary research. This volume provides for the first time an introduction to the central fields of work in Internet lexicography and presents the current state of scientific research and lexicographic practice. The chapters cover key aspects of dictionary creation, such as the technical framework, data modeling, and lexicographic process, linking dictionary content, access and navigation structures, automatic extraction of lexicographic information, user participation, and research on dictionary use.

The aim of this volume is to provide students and teachers (at universities) with an introductory and easy-to-read overview on Internet lexicography, thus anchoring this important and innovative field of research and practice in university teaching. All chapters convey the basic concepts and methods in a comprehensible way and are enriched by references to further and more in-depth reading.
