This paper presents the theories and methods
that have been used to develop a specific
user-generated search route in the Spanish
Accounting Dictionary, which consists in
offering users the search button Encontrar
un término. This allows users who are
uncertain of the exact form of the term to be
searched for, or who want to explore the data
of a particular term field, to generate their
own searches and search strategies by using
Boolean operators. With these, users can
then retrieve various data categories from
the lexicographic database, e.g. they can
retrieve lemmas, equivalents, parts of
collocations or examples, etc. Clicking on
the retrieved data from the list they can then
access data that can suit their needs in
different situations, typically in cognitive or
communicative situations.
