The project was carried out by the Institute for German Language (IDS) in Mannheim together with the Chair of German Linguistics at the University of Mannheim. The Albertus-Magnus-Schule (AMS) in Viernheim and the Bach-Gymnasium in Mannheim were involved. In lectures and workshops, the participating students gained an insight into the methods of modern linguistics, especially corpus linguistics and corpus-based lexicography. The students selected the words for which they write their own corpus-based dictionary entries. After an introduction to wiki technology, they then transferred the content to the Denktionary, the project's wikibased dictionary.
