Enquiries about language resources and tools in the new database of the Language Consulting Centre
The Langue Consulting Centre (LCC) has been providing its regular services for more than eighty years. The LCC improves its activities in the area of language consultation by using new technologies. The most recent outcome of the LCC is The Linguistically Structured Database of Enquiries (LSDE). The LSDE enables searching through user enquiries and the LCC’s replies. This paper analyses users’ needs connected with language resources and tools, based on enquiries related to their use. First, we examine the need for language resources, including the question of which of them users actually (want to) use, and why, and what they expect of them. Second, we focus on the enquirers’ need to be able to use the appropriate language resources and tools properly, focusing on their interpretation of how the resources and tools are designed. Subsequently, the information about enquirers’ needs is used to formulate specific proposals for language education activities, belonging to the field of language cultivation as well as lexicography.
