Here we present some sample queries on the database and corresponding results, and some lexical entries (plain XML).

NB /Fwk/ as leading string in element names is obsolete: readability improves if it is ignored. The main unit (‘word sense’ or ‘lexical unit’) is a FwkSenCnt or ‘sense container’)

Queries, Results and Editing interface

We use IDM’s ( Dictionary Production System, in particular its SkXML query language and interface, and its EntryEditor for writing the dictionary. Here we show:

  • The SkXML query builder
  • An SkXML query for finding candidate spray/load verbs in DANTE, with results list
  • The EntryEditor opened for editing dab, one of the spray/load verbs identified

Sample entries

They are available below.
