The study examines the user-generated web dictionary We analyze how the content of has developed with particular focus on 190 contributor aliases. The contributors can be grouped based on two distinct factors: 1) by how many words and expressions they have submitted, and 2) by the type of words they prefer to describe. Most of the contributors only publish one or two words. Furthermore, a majority choose to describe dialect words or slang words. Many of these words are not described in traditional dictionaries. The advantages of having people with different backgrounds and skills working with word collections are obvious, and their work is an important contribution to the fields of dialectology and lexicography.
