Subtitle: A Worldwide Outlook
Edited By: Olga M. Karpova
Faina I. Kartashkova
Description:

The present book contains a collection of works devoted to current trends
in theoretical and practical lexicography, terminology and terminography.
All papers are divided into two main sections. Part I: Lexicography deals
with analysis of historical and typological problems in lexicography with
special reference to English, Italian, Russian and Southern African
dictionaries for general- and special- purposes. The main focus is given to
the description of principles in lexicographic presentation of
non-equivalent lexics, rhyming slang, idioms, clichés and gender
nominations of people in bilingual and monolingual dictionaries.

Part II: Terminology and Terminography is devoted to description of the
current tendencies observed in terminology and terminography studies with
special reference to modern European languages such as English, Russian,
Norwegian, etc. Terms of different special domains are viewed from the
angle of the latest achievements of modern science, cognitive linguistics
in particular. It reveals specific features of terminological
word-combinations, terms in colloquial use, peculiarities of terms
belonging to newly formed Languages for Special purposes, typical features
of recently appeared LSPs and presentations of new dictionaries’ projects
of different subject areas. This part reveals international nature of
current tendencies in terminology studies and shows the national ways of
their functioning and presentation in special dictionaries.
