hi @ all,

several thoughts were spent on this issue.
i am working with non-standard (dialectal and historical) data and dictionaries since about 20years.

there are groups who are using more formal notation systems.
there is a standardisation groug i am connected to, that tries to find ways to get into more formal, machine readable approaches.

i am  curious about the improvement of lexicography and it´s re-invention, and this sounds to me one  likely approach towards results with impact.
i am recently chairing a working group within the "european network for electronic lexicography" (ENeL: www.elexicography.eu) on "lexicology and lexicography from a pan-european perspective" . we might find interested partners to share data and experiences within this.

i would be quiet curious about an investigation on how variant pronouncations in a dictionary receive individual etymologies and am ready to work on this and discucss.

warm regards from vienna:

If you want to write for a global audience, and for future ages, then use
IPA. Any other ad-hoc notation will be ephemeral & unappreciated. But, then
again, as I think about it, IPA is probably a Communist conspiracy, like
metric, and an assault on American Exceptionalism. Okay, never mind.
