Abstract:

The problem of definition has a long history and has engaged the minds of
some of the most eminent thinkers in the Western tradition, from Plato and
Aristotle onwards. But it is also an everyday problem constantly
confronting all who have to draft or interpret the countless texts on which
modern society depends. Definition in Theory and Practice focuses on two
areas where difficulties arise in a particularly acute form: lexicography
and the law. Examining a wide range of approaches and definitional
techniques, backed up by detailed analyses of dictionary entries and court
cases, the authors provide a comprehensive survey of their subject. They
argue that what underlies the problem of definition are conflicting
assumptions about the way language functions. This in-depth study of
definition will be of interest to academics researching lexicography,
semantics and the intersection of linguistics and jurisprudence.
