The goal of the project is to create an open-access dictionary of Croatian idioms based on data from a large electronic corpus. The resulting dictionary will serve as a gateway for a large number of users and researchers to current idiomatic usage of Croatian.
The dictionary is based on the Croatian web corpus hrWaC (1.2 billion words). Using a large electronic corpus to compile a dictionary is in line with one of the key principles of modern-day lexicography: we can obtain reliable linguistic data by observing language in use.
