  16. After LEXUS… From Toolbox LEXUS • Accessible online • Rich in multimedia • Adjustable display Still it is a list of isolated entries

  17. What can you do with ViCoS? • Create links between lexical entries or their parts in a user friendly way • Access the detailed lexical information in LEXUS • Define new relations particular to your lexicon • Create external links to your entries (wikipedia, googlemaps) • Browse through the lexicon along the defined relations

  18. Iwaidja conceptual space The Iwaidja community: “traditionally lived as hunters, gatherers, and fishers, drawing on the sea for most of their protein, through fish, turtle, dugong and shellfish”
