This interface to ONP generates pages directly from the dictionary’s database. (An alternative application for accessing ONP is here.) The button, when available, will switch to the alternative ONP web application.
The text generated here is Unicode/UTF-8 and is in English where available. HTML semantic tagging is used where possible. Where there is only Danish text available it will appear in this colour and will open in Google Translate when clicked. Where there are definitions in both Danish and English, the two versions are separated by ⫽. A green headword in the headword list is one which has been semantically analysed or structured in some form (English and/or Danish definitions, or structure only) and published.
Use the fields below to search ONP’s dictionary or use the tabs to browse the dictionary. Most searches are accent- and case-insensitive and can use the wildcard characters _ (underscore) for any letter or % for any number of letters. The advanced word search is found under words.
Use the icon at the top of each page to send feedback or corrections to us.
Den alternative apps grænseflade er helt på både dansk og engelsk. Ordbogen og ONPs registre kan ikke gennemses, som her, men kan søges. Den mangler nogle funktioner der findes her, men har andre, f.eks. citater i alfabetisk / kronologisk rækkefølge. ⫽
The alternative app’s interface is in both Danish and English. The dictionary and indices cannot be browsed as here, only searched. It lacks some features found here but includes some others, such as alphabetical/chronological listing of citations.Go to app
