dc.description.abstractOne of the main goals of The Comparative Bantu Online Dictionary (CBOLD) is to develop a comparative electronic database of Bantu dictionaries and word lists which will allow researchers to examine data quickly across a large number of languages. To that end, we have been developing standards which will allow our sources to be compared with each other even though they were not originally designed for such a purpose. These involve a system for maintaining a distinction between original data and data we have added to a source, expanding existing SGML DTD's for detailed linguistic markup, the use of a <preface> element to store reference information with each of our sources, and the creation of a language metadata element where we can specify which languages the source's data covers as well as state all major alternate names for the relevant languages.en_US
