Abstract:

Yesterday's Words: Contemporary, Current and Future Lexicography reflects
the main issues of scholarly discussion in the fields of historical
lexicography and lexicology including the historiography of lexicography.
The state-of-the-art volume offers a wide range of contributions in five
chapters.

After the editors' introduction to Yesterday's Words, the chapter
Dictionaries and Dictionary-Makers of Former Ages concentrates on
historical lexicography, including both the main lexicographical works in
English and German and dictionaries of minority languages such as Frisian,
Welsh, Irish and Scots. The Vocabulary of the Past discusses historical
lexicological and etymological issues such as the results of early language
contact in the West-Germanic area and in Jamaica in more recent times.
Researchers involved in ongoing lexicographical projects, such as the first
dictionary of Old Dutch, report on their practice and methodological
approach in Current and Future Lexicography and Lexicology. Many
dictionaries or dictionary research projects discussed in the volume have
been or are being carried out in a digital environment. In the final
chapter, Technology of Today for Yesterday's Words, special attention is
paid to projects in which computer techniques and the development of new
applications have been essential.

The volume is an essential text for lexicographers, historiographers and
historical linguists.
