The digital index is designed as a relational database and lists all lemmas currently contained in the dictionary in alphabetical order (see Publications). It includes lemma variants, reference lemmas and also enables simple and combined queries. Furthermore, to facilitate searches for entries with regionally varying dialect forms, fuzzy searches and searches with placeholders are possible. The results offer relevant keywords. For this purpose, references lead to passages in the printed volume, but also link directly to the digitally stored online version of the Bayerisches Wörterbuch.
