Dictionaries of Linguistics and Communication Science

The “WSK” is a German online dictionary series which will be published in print in 2019/2020. Each of the dictionaries is a terminological special field dictionary on the subject of “Linguistics and Communication Science.” The dictionaries will be partially translated to English, are intended for experts and semi-experts, and they will serve for comprehension of technical terms, information, and translation. Currently, 25 dictionaries are envisioned for the series, which will contain more than 50,000 lemmas. Over 11,000 of those dictionary articles have been published online since 2013. About
800 people are working on the project worldwide.


In this talk, the structure of the whole project, the organization and management, and the work flow of article writing will be presented. By taking volume 1, “Grammar”, as a basis, the text compound structure, the function of the systematic introduction, and the article structure will be introduced.
