Title: The Oxford Guide to Practical Lexicography
Written By: B. T. Sue Atkins
Michael Rundell
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199277711
Description:

This is a down-to-earth, 'how to do it' textbook on the making of
dictionaries. Written by professional lexicographers with over seventy
years' experience between them, the book presents a step-by-step course for
the training of lexicographers in all settings, including publishing
houses, colleges, and universities world-wide, and for the teaching of
lexicography as an academic discipline. It takes readers through the
processes of designing, collecting, and annotating a corpus of texts; shows
how to analyse the data in order to extract the relevant information; and
demonstrates how these findings are drawn together in the semantic,
grammatical, and pedagogic components that make up an entry. The authors
explain the relevance and application of recent linguistic theories, such
as prototype theory and frame semantics, and describe the role of software
in the manipulation of data and the compilation of entries. They provide
practical exercises at every stage.

The Oxford Guide to Practical Lexicography draws on materials developed by
the authors over more than twenty years of teaching courses for publishing
houses and universities in the US, Japan, Hong Kong and China, South
Africa, Australia, the UK, and Europe. It will be welcomed everywhere by
lexicographers, teachers of lexicography, and their students. It is also
fascinating reading for all those interested in discovering how
dictionaries are made.
