Abstract:
			
The book presents the first investigation of modern Welsh dictionaries
in their socio-historic context. It is based on the latest
lexicographical and grammatical research. It focuses predominantly on
the analysis of the grammatical information contained in modern Welsh
general-purpose of dictionaries. In the light of a rich
lexicographical production in contemporary Wales, this aspect is of
highest priority, since such grammatical information provides the
basic knowledge of how to use lexical items in context and how to
apply them in speech. An adequate linguistic description of a given
language will thereby support its maintenance and the identity of its
speakers, a problem area also discussed here.  In view of this, Welsh
nouns and verbs are presented in a new classification which aimes to
reflect their properties more clearly and make them more easily
reflectable in dictionary entries. A plea has been made for the
inclusion of comprehensive morphological information into dictionary
entries, but also phonetic transcription in order to promote language
acquisition and maintenance.  The works pays respect to the
lexicographical work which has been thus far in Wales produced under
intricate socio-historical conditions. It is meant to encourage
further linguistic research and thereby to contribute to the
stabilisation of the language.  The author of the book is a lecturer
on Celtic. She has published widely on various aspects of Celtic
matters.
