Subtitle: Tradition, Konstanz und Wandel
Written By: Undine Kramer
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110234671-1
Series Title: Lexicographica. Series Maior / Supplementbände zum Internationalen Jahrbuch für Lexikographie 139
Description:

This volume covers more than 200 years of recording specific language in
German explanatory dictionaries. For the first time, the comparative
analysis of six dictionaries from the 18th to the 20th century provides
reliable data which subject areas were covered lexicographically and which
special methods of marking were used. Nautical language serves as an
example to show constancy and changes in adding new specific vocabularies
in the above mentioned time period. A broad overview of specific language
research since the 19th century rounds off the book.
