Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Pedagogical Specialised Lexicography
Subtitle: The representation of meaning in English and Spanish business dictionaries
Written By: Pedro Antonio Fuertes Olivera
Ascensión Arribas-Baño
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TLRP%2011
Series Title: Terminology and Lexicography Research and Practice 11
Description:

This stimulating new book, which combines dictionary research and
linguistic knowledge, analyses the representation of meaning in business
dictionaries from a pedagogical perspective. By examining in detail the
macrostructure, mediostructure, access structure and microstructure of
eight business dictionaries, this book presents interesting findings on how
the dictionaries studied represent the 'noun-term', and on how they cope
with the principles of new lexicography that aims at solving the needs of a
specific type of user with specific types of problems related to a specific
type of user situation. This exhaustive study, which makes simultaneous
contributions to the theory of terminology, lexicography, and LSP teaching,
defends a methodological confluence between LSP lexicography and
terminology, and proposes some guiding principles towards the construction
of pedagogically-oriented specialised dictionaries that must target
students enrolled in LSP courses: Business English, Business Spanish,
Business Translation, etc.
