This paper describes the functional de- sign of an interface for an online schol- arly dictionary of contemporary standard Dutch, the ANW. One of the main inno- vations of the ANW is a twofold meaning description: definitions are accompanied by ‘semagrams’. In this paper we focus on the strategies that are available for ac- cessing information in the dictionary and the role semagrams play in the dictionary practice.
