Abstract:

This book contains a collection of original research articles on
lexicography written by prominent international scholars within the field.
It aims at describing the state-of-the-art in lexicography at the beginning
of the 21st century and at making proposals for future theoretical and
practical work in the field.

Theoretical lexicography currently has two competing theories: a
contemplative theory focusing on the description of existing dictionaries
on the basis of linguistic principles, and a function-based, transformative
theory focusing on the dictionary and the user in order to develop new
principles for dictionary research and dictionary making. Research in
lexicography has now reached a crossroads and it is time to take stock of
the present situation and try to identify the theories and principles that
will set the agenda and point the direction for future lexicographic
research and the production of printed and electronic dictionaries.
