Summary/Abstract: The article presents the possibilities for researching phenomena of language contact in Hungarian variants spoken in the states neighbouring Hungary, focusing on the Termini online dictionary and database. The lexicographical database is edited online in 7 countries, and it makes possible the study of direct and indirect linguistic influences in context, as they can be noted in the Hungarian variants spoken in bilingual contexts. As the lexicographical items of the dictionary contain abundant information about stylistic value, meaning, usage, and etymological issues, the database can also be used efficiently in sociolinguistic, lexical, descriptive linguistic, and stylistic studies.
