|This article describes the structure, features and usage of a specialized lexicographic workstation, named PRALED, developed by the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University for the purpose of development of new modern lexical database of the Czech language at the Institute of Czech Language, Czech Academy of Sciences. The PRALED system is based on the Dictionary Editor and Browser (DEB) development platform that is designed for implementations of general dictionary writing systems. The design of the PRALED client and server parts is oriented to fluent editing of very complex dictionary entries. The resulting lexicographic database contains all the morpho-syntactic information of Czech lexical entries in a machine readable form, providing an invaluable resource for both human experts as well as computer applications. The article describes the DEB platform, as well as some current DEB applications, focusing on the PRALED lexicographic station.
