The Deutsches Wörterbuch (German: [ˌdɔʏtʃəs ˈvœʁtɐbuːx]; "The German Dictionary"), abbreviated DWB, is the largest and most comprehensive dictionary of the German language in existence.[1][2] Encompassing modern High German vocabulary in use since 1450, it also includes loanwords adopted from other languages into German. Entries cover the etymology, meanings, attested forms, synonyms, usage peculiarities, and regional differences of words found throughout the German speaking world. The dictionary's historical linguistics approach, illuminated by examples from primary source documents, makes it to German what the Oxford English Dictionary is to English.[3] The first completed DWB lists over 330,000 headwords in 67,000 print columns spanning 32 volumes.[4]

Beginning in 1830, Weidmann's Publishing House in Leipzig repeatedly approached Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm with a proposal for a large new dictionary, spanning German vocabulary from Martin Luther to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. As busy professors at Göttingen University, the Brothers Grimm rejected such a complex undertaking. A political scandal then dramatically changed matters. In 1837, the new King of Hanover, Ernst August, dissolved parliament and demanded oaths of allegiance from all civil servants. The brothers and five other professors refused and this so-called "Göttingen Seven" were removed from their positions by royal order. The brothers then became political refugees in their former home in Kassel.[5]

For the sixth edition of this classic dictionary, the text has been thoroughly revised and updated. With over 10,000 entries, the Oxford Dictionary of Music (previously the Concise Oxford Dictionary of Music) offers broad coverage of a wide range of musical categories spanning many eras, including composers, librettists, singers, orchestras, important ballets and operas, and musical instruments and their history. Over 250 new entries have been added to this edition to expand coverage of popular music, ethnomusicology, modern and contemporary composers, music analysis, and recording technology. Existing entries have been expanded where necessary to include more coverage of the reception of major works, and to include key new works and categories, such as multimedia.

The dictionary now also includes two useful appendices, one listing French, German, and Italian musical terms with their English translations, and an abbreviations list for letters commonly used in musical scores and musical writing.

The Oxford Dictionary of Music is the most up-to-date and accessible dictionary of musical terms available and an essential point of reference for music students, teachers, lecturers, professional musicians, as well as music enthusiasts.

Tim Rutherford-Johnson has worked for the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians since 1999 and until 2010 was the editor responsible for the dictionary's coverage of 20th- and 21st century music. He has published and lectured on several contemporary composers, and regularly reviews new music for both print and online publications.

Advancements in techniques like part-of-speech (PoS) tagging, named entity recognition (NER), information extraction and sentiment analysis (Toutanova et al., 2003; Finkel et al., 2005; Devika et al., 2016) have made applications of natural language processing (NLP) relatively conspicuous, and the analysis of unstructured textual data more accessible. Sentiment analysis has emerged as a means to systematically extract and classify opinions, attitudes, thoughts, judgments and emotions from user-generated Web content (Thet et al., 2010; Yu and Hatzivassiloglou, 2003; Rambocas and Gama, 2013; Qazi et al., 2017). Online sentiment analysis denotes different analytical approaches, including supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods as well as lexicon, keyword and concept-based approaches (Li et al., 2019; Kumar and Garg, 2020). Automated sentiment analysis relies on algorithms to process text. Tang et al. (2014) used a dictionary of affective words from SentiStrength2, while Ludwig et al. (2013) used the linguistic inquiry and word count program (LIWC), which calculates the proportion of words in a text that matches the pre-defined dictionaries.
