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.
