Access Database Design for a book’s master special word database…

Say an author has a book with “special words” identified for use in a
glossary, index, spell check adder, persons, authors, book titles,
quoted ironic words, possessive words, etc

Since every author needs this; I hope it can be a free collaborative
open source web project to build a freeware database with minimal
features first so everybody can deal with their books professionally;
indeed; I am surprised Microsoft didn’t add one…

MS index service is not what I want.

How the data gets in the database is a different story....

I just want to know what tables to build and what fields for them so
everything is in normal form with respec to relational databases...

The first thing is to not use Access. It is not intended for "heavy
lifting", and has some serious limitations for on-line collaborative usage.
Access is not "open source", so it misses on that criterion as well.

But, having looked at your original post, I am unclear about why your
intentions can't be met with the built-in spell checking capability of any
decent layout or authoring application.
