With this tool, occurrences of a headword of a historical dictionary like e.g. the Oxford English Dictionary are automatically marked in the quotations belonging to that headword in the dictionary.
Comprehensive historical dictionaries with quotations form ideal sources for lexicon building, provided that the structure is XML encoded so as to be able to parse the quotations and their metadata.
The tool is written for Dutch and will therefore need some adaptation when used for another language/dictionary. It has also been successfully applied to English and Polish in IMPACT.
