Subject: Dictionnaire de L'Academie francaise, 5th Edition, 1798

Dictionnaire de l'Acad&eacute;mie, 5th Edition, 1798 (Year VII).

As part of the <i>Dictionnaire de l'Acad&eacute;mie Fran&ccedil;aise</i>
Database Project (<http://www.epas.utoronto.ca:8080/~wulfric/academie/>)
directed by R. Wooldridge and I. Leroy-Turcan, Professor
Douglas Kibbee, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and
the ARTFL Project, University of Chicago, are collaborating to perform
data capture, required editing, and development of a search engine
for the 5th Edition of the <i>Dictionnaire de l'Acad&eacute;mie
fran&ccedil;aise</i>, published in 1798 (Year VII).

We are pleased to announce an ALPHA release of this resource, accessible
to all users at:


This is a preliminary release, using a very simple headword
search engine, so we are expecting some problems. We are
developing a more sophisticated search scheme for this, and
other documents, such as our Encyclopedie of Diderot and d'Alembert.

Please feel free to examine this resource and let me know
about bugs, typos, mis-identified structures, and anything
else that seems to be a problem.

Data entry of the first edition of the <i>Dictionnaire</i> (1695)
is underway and should be completed in a month or so. Work on
other editions, including the edition of 1765, is under way or
being planned. Thus, your comments, complaints, and suggestions
are quite important, since we can alter our proceedures and systems
as we get this project underway.

Thanks in advance!!
