Title: Lexicography in the 21st Century
Subtitle: In honour of Henning Bergenholtz
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TLRP%2012
Series Title: Terminology and Lexicography Research and Practice 12
Description:

This is a state-of-the-art volume on lexicography at the beginning of the
21st century. It also offers proposals for future theoretical
and practical work. The contributions, inspired by the ground-breaking work
of Henning Bergenholtz, address topics such as dictionary functions;
dictionary users; access routes; dictionary structures; dictionary
reviewing; subject-field classifications; data retrieval; corpus
lexicography; and collocations and phraseology. The contributors, all
highly regarded international scholars in the field of lexicography, show
how the theory of lexicographical functions can extend the forefront of the
discipline by focusing on dictionary functions and how these meet the needs
of users in various types of user situations. Thereby echoing Bergenholtz's
idea that a dictionary is a tool that can help users solve problems
encountered in communicative, cognitive and operative situations. This
volume is not only of interest to practical and theoretical lexicographers
but to anyone interested in lexicography.
