An accessible introduction to the subject, Lexicography provides a
detailed overview of the history, types and contents of these
essential references. Analyzing a variety of dictionaries: ones
geared to native speakers, thematic ones and those on CD-ROM, Howard
Jackson reveals the myriad of ways that dictionaries fulfill their
dual function of describing the vocabulary of English and providing a
useful reference source. This introduction contains an introduction to
terms used in lexicography and offers suggestions for further
reading. Ideal for all who want to learn how a dictionary creates
knowledge and who want to know how a dictionary is created.

Lingfield(s): Lexicography
