Abstract:

This book provides a systematic survey of the theory and methods of
dictionary-making (including the linguistic background): what types of
dictionary there are, how different kinds of information are dealt with
when compiling dictionaries, how this information is presented to users,
and how dictionaries are actually used. It refers throughout to both
monolingual and bilingual dictionaries, giving a full account of the
writing of definitions as well as of the selection and presentation of
equivalents. The treatment of other types of information provided in
dictionaries - such as pronunciation, inflection, constructions,
collocations and idioms - is described systematically in individual
chapters. The book also discusses dictionary structure, illustrations, the
collection and selection of material, the management of dictionary
projects, law and ethics in lexicographic work, and dictionary criticism.
As well as looking at print lexicography, the author discusses the role of
the Web, electronic corpora, electronic dictionaries, and compilation
software used in dictionary-making. This is an important and practical
guide to contemporary lexicography, designed for lexicographers, language
students and teachers, translators and academics.
