Title: Specialised Dictionaries for Learners
Edited By: Pedro A. Fuertes-Olivera
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110231328-1
Series Title: Lexicographica. Series Maior / Supplementbände zum Internationalen Jahrbuch für Lexikographie 136
Description:

The need for constructing a lexicographical theory with a particular focus
on specialised dictionaries for learners is well documented in recent
publications. This will imply paying attention to, at least, four basic
lexicographic categories: learners; the learner's situation; the learner's
needs; dictionary assistance. In one or other way, these categories are
analysed in this book, whose eleven chapters are grouped into three parts.

Part 1 reflects on some of the main ideas defended by the function theory
of lexicography, perhaps the theoretical framework that has paid more
attention to specialised lexicography.

Part 2 presents some proposals that have already being explored in the
field of general learner's dictionary and must be incorporated into
specialised metalexicography: cultural aspects; figurative meaning; the
inclusion of grammatical information; the use of corpora.

Part 3 introduces the state of play regarding specialised dictionaries in
China and offers some ideas for coping with the proliferation of
terminological glossaries in Internet.

The book also describes Enrique Alcaraz's academic achievements, together
with some personal anecdotes, and a personal short tribute to his memory.
