Title: Perspectives on Lexicography in Italy and Europe
Edited By: Silvia Bruti
Roberta Cella
Marina Foschi Albert
Description:

Lexicography is a very special field of research, in which theory arises
from concrete problems and practice moulds on theoretical assumptions in a
way of working that is at the same time technical and innovative. The
volume offers an overview of the main aspects of the state of art of
lexicographical research in Europe, with contributions concerning both
historical and synchronic dictionaries and a wide spectrum of the main
European languages (French, English, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish).
Several contributions show the beneficial effects deriving from the close
connection between modern lexicography and information technology, which in
the last few years profoundly changed the way of designing, realising and
using dictionaries. An appendix contains some reflections on lexicography
and translation, one of the most important functional goals for both
monolingual and bilingual dictionaries.
