Title: New Trends in Lexicography
Subtitle: Ways of Registrating and Describing Lexis
Edited By: Olga M. Karpova
Faina I. Kartashkova
Description:

The present book contains a collection of works developing new trends in
theoretical and practical lexicography devoted to manifold description of
lexis. All papers are divided into two main sections:

Part I, Systemic and Cross-cultural Relations of Words in the Dictionary,
presents analysis of cultural issues and phraseology with special reference
to English dictionaries for general- and specific-purposes. The main focus
is given to the principles of lexicographic presentation of non-equivalent
lexis, idioms, clichés, nominations of non-verbal behaviour and proper
names of people in bilingual and monolingual dictionaries.

Part II, entitled Specialized Dictionaries: Traditions and Innovations,
deals with peculiarities of Author Lexicography, Learners lexicography, LSP
dictionaries, dictionaries of English verbs, and varieties of the English
language in its synchronic and diachronic aspects.

This book is based on plenary presentations of the VIIIth school on
Lexicography “Synchronic and Diachronic Lexicography: A New Age of Theory
and Practice” (Ivanovo State University, September 10–12, 2009) and
continues the series of monographs devoted to theoretical and practical
problems of modern and historical lexicography: Essays on Lexicon,
Lexicography, Terminography in Russian, American and Other Cultures (2007)
and Lexicography and Terminology: A Worldwide Outlook (2009) published by
Cambridge Scholars Publishing.
