It has been shown by the analysis of the grammatical information of nouns in the 'Dictionary of the Contemporary Slovak Language' that some modifications will present a step forward, not only towards user-friendliness of the dictionary, but also towards more adequate description of morphology of the respective lexical units. In this paper, we have pointed out that more attention is to be paid to certain issues, such as non-contradictory application of the distinctive-suffix rule, consistent display of troubled grammatical forms for relevant groups of nouns, reconsideration of some data for variant spellings, and adding precision in morphological data for augmentatives. To optimize the grammatical information, we observe both the frequency of the respective inflectional forms, and the influence (either synergetic or opposed) of relevant grammatical factors: that of semantics, grammar, derivation, orthoepy and others.
