Book Information

   

Title: Bilingual Lexicography from a Communicative Perspective
Written By: Heming Yong
Jing Peng
Series Title: Terminology and Lexicography Research and Practice 9
Description:

This stimulating new book, as the premier work introducing bilingual
lexicography from a communicative perspective, is launched to represent
original thinking and innovative theorization in the field of bilingual
lexicography. It treats the bilingual dictionary as a system of
intercultural communication and bilingual dictionary making as a dynamic
process realized by sets of choices, characterizing the overall nature of
the dictionary. It examines the dictionary and dictionary making by using a
model of lexicography which stresses the three-way relationship of
compiler, dictionary text and user, and incorporates them into a unified
coherent framework. Throughout the study, special focus is on English and
Chinese bilingual lexicography. It will serve not only as a valuable guide
to those interested in dictionary compilation and theoretical inquiries but
also as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in bilingual
lexicography.
