Title: Lexicography in the Borderland between Knowledge and Non-Knowledge
Subtitle: General Lexicographical Theory with Particular Focus on Learner's Lexicography
Written By: Sven Tarp
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783484391345-1
Series Title: Lexicographica. Series Maior
Description:

The book contains a state-of-the-art summary of the theoretical discussions
within the field of lexicography during the last decades. On this basis it
presents and argues for a new general theory, called the function theory.
It goes on to develop this theory in one single field, i.e. learners
lexicography where it both formulates the basic elements of a general
theory for learners’ dictionaries as well as a number of specific theories
for special subfields such as selection, meaning, semantic relations,
morphology, syntactic properties and word combinations. It contains a big
number of examples extracted from existing dictionaries which are discussed
from the point of view of the theories formulated.
