What Do You Want?

When it comes to the functionality of the Dictionary, we’ve already got a number of different things planned. In addition to being able to browse and search by headword, we intend to implement search for variant forms, browsing by category (time period; language; place of origin), timelines (when was a certain name in use?), and maps (where was a certain name in use?). But since the Dictionary is not anything without people to use it, we wanted to know: What do you want? What types of searches/browses do you expect you will do, and what sort of information would you find it useful to have easily available? Leave a comment and let us know, so that we can incorporate your suggestions into the dictionary design.
