Title: Current Projects in Historical Lexicography
Published: 2010
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Editor: John Considine
Hardback: ISBN: 1443821160 9781443821162 Pages: 240 Price: U.K. £ 39.99

Current Projects in Historical Lexicography brings together seven papers by
present and recent editors of historical dictionaries and lexical
databases. The collection is introduced with an overview of the history of
historical lexicography from the ancient world to the present day, with
particular emphasis on the major nineteenth-century dictionaries of German,
French, English, Dutch, Swedish, and Danish, and on their successors. In
the first paper, Javier Martín Arista describes the present state of, and
the prospects for, the Nerthus lexical database of Old English. The next
two introduce specialized dictionaries of the language of medieval and
early modern texts: Fernando Tejedo-Herrero's comprehensive dictionary of
the language of the great thirteenth-century lawcode Siete Partidas, and
Juhani Norri's Dictionary of Medical Vocabulary in English, 1375-1530.
Marijke Mooijaart's paper discusses the online integration of the four
historical dictionaries which cover Dutch from the earliest times to the
twentieth century. The next two papers, Stefan Dollinger on the Dictionary
of Canadianisms on Historical Principles and the Bank of Canadian English,
and Maggie Scott on the Concise Scots Dictionary, describe projects to
revise twentieth-century historical dictionaries as the language varieties
which they register evolve. Finally, Jeremy Bergerson's paper presents a
project for an etymologically rich historical dictionary of Afrikaans. An
appendix to the volume comprises two previously unpublished short documents
by Katherine Barber and John Considine which bear on the history of the
Dictionary of Canadianisms revision project. The contributions to this
volume offer a rare set of insights into ongoing lexicographical work,
addressing both methodological issues such as inclusion criteria and the
balance between diachronic and synchronic coverage, and practical issues
such as publication media and funding.
