The traditional representation of nominal inflection in Serbo-Croatian lexicography cannot link the entries between which a close derivational relationship exists. In the dictionary, this relationship is usually expressed by a stereotyped definition that is based on the meaning of the basic entry. Two types of nominal modifiers of this kind are discussed in this paper: modifiers for gender mutation and modifiers for amplification (formation of diminutives and augmentatives). It is shown that both modifiers form the new noun from the initial one according to the same model and in the way that the nominal inflective class is described. The extension of the traditional nominal class can thus be seen as a tuple of the elementary morphographemic classes that describe the derivations of the basic entry. The consequences of such an extension of the nominal inflective class to the development of the electronic dictionaries of simple words DELAS and DELAF are examined.
