For the past 50 years, linguists - with their focus on syntax - and
lexicographers - with their focus on defining meaning - have largely ignored
each other or even been mutually hostile. In recent years, however, more
attention in linguistics has switched to the lexicon, while lexicographers have
begun to see the need for better theoretical foundations. The two disciplines -
linguistics and lexicography - are now beginning to recognize the benefits of
interaction. This book, in honour of Patrick Hanks, brings together essays on
major theoretical issues in the lexical with essays on issues in practical
analysis of the lexicon by some of the world's leading contemporary linguists,
lexicographers, and philosophers with an interest in words and meaning. It
represents both a dialogue and a variety of significant approaches to
fundamental issues in this topic.

The opening paper is a discussion by the late John Sinclair of the
fundamentals of phraseology and core meaning, building on his theoretical
approach to the relationship between collocation and meaning. The first part
also contains important papers by Wilks (on preference semantics),
Pustejovsky & Rumshisky (on the generative lexicon), Mel'cuk (on the
government pattern), and Wiggins (on paradoxes), advancing our theoretical
understanding of the nature of word meaning. The second part is concerned
with the computation of lexical relations, and contains contributions by Ken
Church (on corpus size), Grefenstette (on the number of concepts), David &
Louise Guthrie (on adjectives that predict noun classes), Geyken (on support
verb constructions), Pala & Rychly (on word sketches), Cinkov√°, Holub &
Smejkalov√° (on the pattern dictionary of English verbs), and Jezek & Frontini
(on the Patternbank). The third part links through to lexical analysis and
dictionary writing, with landmark papers by Rosamund Moon (on idioms),
Atkins (on a new lexicographical database), Kilgarriff & Rychly (on semi-
automatic dictionary drafting), Bogaards (on theory in lexicography), Banko
(on the Polish COBUILD), Green (on argot), and Rundell (on elegance in
defining). The editor, Gilles-Maurice de Schryver, also included an account of
the life and work of Patrick Hanks.
