The impression one initially has of lexicology is rather diffuse. As a
discipline, it suffers from the fate of either not being noticed at all or
of being itself broken down into semi-independent sub-disciplines such as
phraseology and mental lexicon.

It is against this background that the handbook identifies and deals with
the following aims for academic progression and practical / theoretical
* the establishment and maintenance of an independent profile for the
discipline of lexicology
* the collection and documentation of up-to-date knowledge in the field of
* the documentation of research still outstanding and the provision of
guidelines on concrete fields of study

The handbook starts off with the two main sections 'word' and 'vocabulary.'
The sense relations act as the threads which bind these two sections
together, because their ability to link words in pairs allows us to make
successive inroads into the vocabulary.

Moving from the term 'word' to the term 'lexical element' forces us into a
more detailed investigation of phraseology. Detailed treatments of each of
the ways of looking at 'vocabulary' are provided, in view of the ambiguity
of the term 'vocabulary' (vocabulary in its relation to a natural language
vs. vocabulary in its relation to an individual [mental lexicon] vs.
vocabulary in its relation to grammar [lexicon]). Similarly, synchronic and
diachronic points of view are taken into account, in order to be able to
arrive at an adequate description of the underlying dynamics of the
vocabulary of natural languages. In conclusion the present state of
lexicology made it necessary to deal thoroughly with questions about the
discipline, its methodology and its links with related disciplines.

Key Features:
* International handbook series
* Two volumes offering the current state of research
* Fundamental and theoretical approaches of the discipline
