[Documentation] How to retrieve and edit Lexemes from the API
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Summary: Have a clear description on how to use the API to retrieve information about Lexemes, edit any part of Lexemes and create new ones. Provide clear guidance and examples. Identify and highlight the parts that may be missing or will be fixed soon (eg editing statements on Senses)

Existing resources: none?

This would be useful to: Tool builders who would like to build tools to edit Lexemes more efficiently. On the long run, thanks to these tools, more data will be added with a better quality, being useful for more people.

Subject matter experts (people who could help with providing content): Leszek
