This article aims to weigh up lexicographic and grammatical works pertaining to the Ladin languages surrounding the Sella group. Apart from a few exceptions – Alton, partially Vian – dictionaries and grammars focused on different goals and never complemented each other. This prolonged disconnection between lexical and grammatical research is now starting to be left behind. The original Gramatica by Marco Forni, published six years after his Ladin-Italian (Val Gardena) dictionary, communicates with it by means of a systematic hypertextual connection between both digital works. We can hope that such a worthwhile experiment will be applied to the remaining Ladin languages as soon as possible.
