Abstract:

This readable introductory textbook presents a concise survey of
lexicology. The first section of the book is a survey of the study of
words, providing students with an overview of basic issues in defining and
understanding the word as a unit of language. This section also examines
the history of lexicology, the evolution of dictionaries and recent
developments in the field. The second section extends this study of
lexicology into the relationship between words and meaning, etymology,
prescription, language as social phenomenon and translation. 'Lexicology: A
Short Introduction' will be of interest to undergraduate students of
linguistics.
