Dissertation Abstract:

This study explores the semantics of dictionaries, i.e., it provides an
answer to the question of how dictionaries should be read. For this
purpose, articles taken from an outline for a Guaraní-German dictionary
(geared to established lexicographic practice) are 'interpreted' step by
step: each article is systematically assigned a formal sentence making its
meaning explicit. Articles on most kinds of lexicologically relevant
entities are presented and treated in detail, including content words of
different classes (also polysemes), different types of function words, and
both derivational and inflectional affixes.

Besides the main focus on lexicography, the underlying analysis of the
structure of Paraguayan Guaraní is given, to the extent necessary, where
needed. In particular, chapter 2 provides a coherent and partly new account
of phenomena such as nasal harmony and word boundaries in Guaraní. Much
attention has been devoted to a careful conception of the interplay of
morphology and syntax in general. The study is based on the framework of
Integrational Linguistics, which, however, only provides the tools and a
general background needed for the questions of language description at hand.
