Extralinguistic annotation reflects, basically, the corpus design features mentioned above, such as bibliographical data on the author, source, genre, subgenre, medium, original language etc. for each text or, rather, document (in the case of diachronic corpora, information about texts written in verse is often useful, too). The annotation consists in specific tags added to each feature of the text which is included in the annotation scheme. A search of the corpus based on a particular feature, such as the gender of the author, domain and year, might give the lexicographer an insight into the preferences and restrictions on use of a particular lexicographical item.
Consequently the lemma sign entry can be regarded as part of the comment on form of the article. This implies that a dictionary article will always contain a comment on form but not necessarily always a comment on semantics. A typical dictionary article displays a hierarchical structure, cf. Wiegand (1988). This has an influence on the order and arrangement of the items included in the article. Various structural markers function to indicate the relations holding between different items, cf. also Bergenholtz and Tarp (1995: 38).
In the latter, especially in the case of the absence of a written tradition, this may be the first and only way to get the data the non-native lexicographer needs. Interviews are then planned in such a way as to elicit answers which should be unambiguous and reliable, from well-chosen and knowledgeable native informants. While this approach may be peripheral for standard modern dictionaries in the former sense, it has always been the standard procedure used for eliciting dialectological information.
