The reason for creating this database was intention to collect vocabulary of Czech language
of 21st Century. It contains words and phrases as well as idioms, abbreviations, symbols, and
proper nouns. It was completed by researchers from the Institute of the Czech Language.
Each entry comes along with basic information like characteristic of the word classes and
grammatical characteristic, etc. Each meaning for the entry is explained separately. It is not
intended for this database to be used independently. Its main goal is to build basis for the new
explanatory dictionary, so it can provide a complex description of the vocabulary of current Czech
This database is based on corporas, electronic dictionaries, word sketches, morphological
analyzer, etc. It is a huge amount of data which can be useful especially in lexicography and
for other scientific purposes.
The team at the NLP Centre MU, Brno participated in the computer data processing and data
visualization. Unless the data will be fully used by the planned dictionary, the database will
not be opened for public.
Demoversion for public is available here.
