The modern electronic dictionaries of natural languages should be universal. In the linguistic aspects, they should be a multi-linked database similar in their contents to the combinatorial dictionary by I. Mel’čuk, but with more stress on thesaurical links and word combinations. In interface aspects, they should have their data accessible to a text processing software, a human user and a lexicographer.
