说到英语词典,我是外行。作为常识去了解,搜了一下,贴个简介。

OED太大了,没多少人能善用吧。SOED会比较多人使用。

The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (SOED) is an English language dictionary published by the Oxford University Press. The SOED is a two-volume abridgement of the twenty-volume Oxford English Dictionary (OED).

一本词典一个宇宙:英语词典最全推荐
搜狐,2017-10-20

  1. The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary(SOED)

(Oxford University Press)

《简编牛津英语大词典》(SOED)是《牛津英语大词典》(OED)的精简本,是一本经典的历时词典,释义从词源开始,追根溯源,由古及今,权威解读每个英语单词的前世今生。它用OED十分之一的篇幅,收录了三分之一的内容,将1700年之后的英语单词尽收囊中。Simon Winchester曾评价说,“OED是珠穆朗玛峰,SOED就是马特洪峰”。是山峰自然会高大,两大册,拿在手里有点沉哦!

OED, COD, SOED各有千秋,全赖主编的功力,大师殒没后,词典编纂方式趋同反倒没什么特色了。牛津找人编撰SOED的时候,OED只出版到S,所以SOED和OED还是有很多不同的,当然也借鉴了后者不少。那个SOED+Oxford Talking 的高清图片替换的版本值得收藏。

世界变了,词典编撰行业没落了,牛津也不例外。

牛津官网提供升级包,SOED可以升级到第6版,但前提是你得有词典安装程序:

只能在32位系统里安装。我印象中光盘制作水准上乘,有两种查词模式可选,分别对应SOED和COD的结果,想看看COD8的,也算是曲线用上了。

对应SOED v3.0,我只在隔壁看到有人展示过。
本坛仓库里有v2.0的镜像,凑合着用吧。

hrvatska这个词,用karx大侠的OED都查不到,soed和ode 3e能查到,soed最方便,直接与croatia词条完整解释整合在一起。此外就collins ced才有了。MW online ahd worldbook2015 random韦氏这些都没有。

你也像一本 字典百科。

求教:哪个版本的SOED里有这个词?检查了pdf没发现有

soed +otd atauzki最后修改的

多谢二位:pray:

恭喜你成功安装!很多年前我也鼓捣过,一波回忆杀 :joy:

@HelloDict 来这聊 SOED

主要没有源数据,只有 mdx,加工过程中添加了错误、比如循环引用,还比如正则误伤(我估计没用 html tree 节点进行选择)。

这样那样的问题,导致精品想美化、修正,还夹在着各种问题。所以最好从源头数据和 mdx 是如何处理的都公开,而不是只公开最后结果的 mdx,难以回退。

词典我不懂,mdx是最终的成品?这个mdx是SOED官方做的吗?这个mdx成品也是有错误的吗?

比如 SOED 官方的 PC 数据,破解程度只有文字,然后文字可能是私有的格式,然后要修改数据,删原先的标签、判定语义内容加HTML标签区分为释义、子释义、例句、斜体等,改成 HTML ,再打包成 mdx.

比如 SOED6 的源数据 官方 PC 版就有问题,官方自己都加错了标签。

然后确定 headword 相互的跳转。(多个 headword 指向 最后的内容时,形成有向图,但循环指向导致有的词典会崩溃(不断的加载更多的内容)SOED5 的处理)

如果有了源数据,可以从头开始分析最准确的结构,css的标记会边界分明不互相影响。

你之前在另外一个帖子提到有拼接错误,这个拼接错误应该好处理。

最后的 mdx 可以回退到 txt 的,可以参考这篇帖子,很简单, 新手指南:怎样编辑mdx? 文本编辑器可以看看这个帖子 强大的文本编辑器 Emurasoft EmEditor Professional v20.5.6(2021.2.25更新) 文本编辑器可以看看23楼推荐的更新版,我跟着教程做了下,下载3个应用程序,用其中的一个程序把 mdx 变为 txt ,mdx编辑这个很好搞的。

对的,mdx 能 回退到 txt。

txt 提取 </> 之后的第二行到下一个 </> 可以提取出 纯 HTML 数据。但是这个 HTML 一般经过多个作者的正则修改增改标签,方便定制css,而非纯原始数据的 HTML ,这个过程中数据更美观了,错误也难以回退了。

我现在在试试直接从官网获得数据怎么样
