Typography for Dictionary Entry
0

I am looking an example of a well designed layout for a dictionary definition. I attached a photo of an example. Does anyone know of or have examples of printed definitions with carefully chosen typography and spacing? Or digital examples? perhaps the heading on a webpage, where the main heading is the business's name (i.e. pentagram) and beneath the heading is the pronuncation (i.e. /ˈpen(t)əˌɡram/) along with the type of speech (i.e.), the definition itself, and the origin of the word (i.e. origin: Greek, "pentagrammon").

They can be non traditional layouts as well. I am mainly looking for font pairings. I realize this is very specific, but any help would be much appreciated. Even if you can't find examples perhaps suggestions of font pairings, spacing, what words to italicize etc.

Typographically speaking my all time favorite dictionary is the Dutch Dikke Van Dale:
