Book Information


Title: Cover Dictionnaire onomasiologique de l'ancien gascon (DAG) Fasc. 14
Subtitle: Onomasiological Dictionary of Old Gascon (DAG). Fasc. 14
Edited By: Nicoline Winkler
Tiana Shabafrouz

This dictionary of the Old Gascon language used in official documents deals
with the lexis of South-Western France from the beginnings of written Gascon in
the 11th century up to about 1300. The DAG is an onomasiological dictionary
organising the vocabulary by subject groups. The emphasis is placed on the
expressive means of medieval Gascon by bringing together all the words with
related meanings. Thus apart from issues of pure word history, the dictionary
also provides an insight into the structure of the lexis and thus into the linguistic
and cultural history of a language domain.

From Fascicle 12 onwards the DAG is being published with a new structure for
the articles, which provides more scope for semantic description and phrases.
Instead of giving a multiplicity of instances, in future one selected example will
be provided for purposes of contextualisation, which will enhance readability.
