Abstract:

Adventuring in dictionaries: New studies in the history of lexicography
brings together seventeen papers on the making of dictionaries from the
sixteenth century to the present day. 

The first five treat English and French lexicography in the sixteenth and
seventeenth centuries. Heberto Fernandez and Monique Cormier discuss the
outside matter of French-English bilingual dictionaries; Kusujiro Miyoshi
re-assesses the influence of Robert Cawdrey; John Considine uncovers the
biography of Henry Cockeram; Antonella Amatuzzi discusses Pierre Borel's
use of his predecessors; and Fredric Dolezal investigates multi-word units
in the dictionary of John Wilkins and William Lloyd. Linda Mitchell's
account of dictionaries as behaviour guides in the seventeenth and
eighteenth centuries leads on to Giovanni Iamartino's presentation of words
associated with women in the dictionary of Samuel Johnson, and Thora Van
Male's of the ornaments in the Encyclopédie. Nineteenth-century and
subsequent topics are treated by Anatoly Liberman on the growh of the
English etymological dictionary; Julie Coleman on dictionaries of rhyming
slang; Laura Pinnavaia on Richardson's New dictionary and the changing
vocabulary of English; Peter Gilliver on early editorial decisions and
reconsiderations in the making of the Oxford English Dictionary; Anne
Dykstra on the use of Latin as the metalanguage in Joost Halbertsma's
Lexicon Frisicum; Laura Santone on the "Dictionnaire critique" serialized
in Georges Bataille's Surrealist review Documents; Sylvia Brown on the
stories of missionary lexicography behind the Eskimo-English dictionary of
1925; and Michael Adams on the legacies of the Early Modern English
Dictionary project.

The diverse critical perspectives of the leading lexicographers and
historians of lexicography who contribute to this volume are united by a
shared interest in the close reading of dictionaries, and a shared concern
with the making and reading of dictionaries as human activities, which
cannot be understood without attention to the lives of the people who
undertook them.
