The present book is based on the presentations made during the IXth International School on Lexicography “Multi-disciplinary Lexicography: Traditions and Challenges of the XXIst century” (Ivanovo State University, September 8-10, 2011) and continues a series of collective monographs devoted to theoretical and practical problems of lexicography, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in 2007, 2009, 2010.
