Title: Textcorpus und Wörterbuch
Subtitle: Aspekte zur ägyptischen Lexikographie
Edited By: S. Grunert
I. Hafemann
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=9273
Series Title: Probleme der Ägyptologie
Description:

The confrontation of the magisterial Wörterbuch der Ägyptischen Sprache (12
volumes, publ. 1926-1963) and the enormous possibilities for lexicography
offered by modern techniques forms the subject of this new volume in
Brill's monograph series Probleme der Ägyptologie.

It consists of papers offering of course an appreciation of the Wörterbuch,
but also thorough contributions highlighting specific lexicographical and
linguistic problems, and the new approaches and concepts in these fields.
New directions for (Egyptian) lexicography are appearing, profiting from,
and combining the solid lexicographical methodologies of the past, and
computer-aided innovations of today.
