       Depending on how much you are willing to invest on learning the
       program and how much consistency you want enforced, you might
       also want to consider SIL's LinguaLinks program, which excels
       in dictionary work.

       Shoebox is more user-friendly, and you can do quite a lot with
       it, as evidenced by the widespread use it has had across the
       world, with both  SIL and non-SIL users. LinguaLinks is harder
       to learn, but it is an object-oriented program, enforces more
       consistency, and has better built-in cross-links using various
       semantic roles such as part-whole, members of a articular
       semantic domain, subentries, various senses, and so forth. Look
       for both of them at http://www.sil.org/computing/ .

       Within a couple years, SIL hopes to have "Fieldworks" out,
       which will combine the user-friendliness of Shoebox with the
       power of LinguaLinks. Watch for it!
