Lexical Encoding

The same is basically true for the orthographic representation: in some languages there exists no standardized form for spelling9.4. The orthographic representation forms the lexical access to the dictionary and is therefore quite important for the usability. Try to be pragmatic about it, but at the same time ensure that the used spellings are consistent throughout the dictionary. Make sure that the spellings you are using in the dictionary match those being used in your annotation or transcription files9.5. If you're using a standard dictionary, name it and the edition you're using in the documentation.
