  1. Dear Marina Santini, As always impressive, well-documented work from your desk. When your time allows it, I would invite you to have a look at the WordMaps topology. It’s claim is to make users more productive and optimising the balance between interpretation errors Type I and II. The current no. of implemented distinctions surpasses 1,3 million and the no. of curated words exceeds 3,3 millions. Best wishes, Olfert Rahbek, The WordMaps Project
