(Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science 21.1)


The impression one initially has of lexicology is rather diffuse. As a
discipline, it suffers from the fate of either not being noticed at
all - on account of sub-disciplines, such as lexicography, morphology
and lexical semantics, which are already well established in their own
right - or of being itself broken down into semi-independent
sub-disciplines such as phraseology and mental lexicon.  It is against
this background that the handbook identifies and deals with the
following aims for academic progression and practical/theoretical
research: - the establishment and maintenance of an independent
profile for the discipline of lexicology - the collection and
documentation of up-to-date knowledge in the field of lexicology - the
documentation of research still out-standing and the provision of
guidelines on concrete fields of study.  The handbook starts off with
the two main sections 'word' and 'vocabulary'. The sense relations act
as the threads which bind these two sections together, because their
ability to link words in pairs allows us to make successive inroads
into the vocabulary. Moving from the term 'word' to the term 'lexical
element' forces us into a more detailed investigation of
phraseology. Detailed treatments of each of the ways of looking at
'vocabulary' are provided, in view of the ambiguity of the term
'vocabulary' (vocabulary in its relation to a natural language
vs. vocabulary in its relation to an individual [mental lexicon]
vs. vocabulary in its relation to grammar [lexicon]).  Similarly,
synchronic and diachronic points of view are taken into account, in
order to be able to arrive at an adequate description of the
underlying dynamics of the vocabulary of natural languages. In
conclusion the present state of lexicology made it necessary to deal
thoroughly with questions about the discipline, its methodology and
its links with related disciplines.
