Welsh Dictionaries in the twentieth century: a critical analysis
Sabine Heinz
Humboldt-Universitaet Berlin

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 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 de�scription of a given language will thereby
support its maintenance and the identity of its speak ers, a problem
area also discussed here. In view of this, Welsh nouns and verbs are
presented in a new classificatio n which aimes to reflect their
properties more clearly and make them mor e easily reflectable in
dictionary entries. A plea has been made for the in clusion of
comprehensive morphological information into dictionary entries,
but also phonetic transcription in order to promote language acquisition a
nd 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 s
tabilisation of the language.
The author of the book is a lecturer on Celtic. She has published widely
on various aspects of Celtic matters.
