ECEP has been built in MS Access format as a relational database consisting of ‘forms’ and ‘fields’ integrated in a variety of ‘tables’.
The proposed digital resource is freely available in a visually and technically user-friendly design.
The web-based interface offers a Browse and a Search layout for Works and Authors. The Search tool allows users to search in one field or in a combination of fields. Fields which contain a predefined list of values offer an automatic drop-down list menu to facilitate selection. Lexical sets and example words can be searched in the entire database or within a particular work. Users can also download their searches into a CSV file, easily converted to Excel format.
