This paper discusses the conceptual considerations for the design and development of an Intranet-based lexicographic knowledge management system at Tele Danmark (TD). The Convergence Telecom Lexinome is thus the result of the interplay between theory and practice. The design and development of CTL are based on an analysis of the communicative environment and of end-users' skills and competencies. On the basis of this analysis, the CTL functions are identified, and the conclusion is drawn that multiple lexicographic and non-lexicographic data sources must be integrated and networked to solve the lexicographic problem identified. Finally, this paper outlines the theoretical framework of the system, which is based on an integrated database and Internet platform converging a multitude of lexicographic and non-lexicographic data sources.
