Studies in Lexicography

R. W. Burchfield
Oxford University Press, 1987 - 200 pages
This collection of essays, edited by the distinguished lexicographer Dr. Robert Burchfield, examines and evaluates some of the greatest dictionaries of our age, from Liddell and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon to the Oxford English Dictionary. Written by leading lexicographers from around the world, these essays focus on the large historical, period, and regional dictionaries, providing insights into a broad range of issues, including: the treatment of homonyms, polysemy, and dialects; the effectiveness of dictionaries designed for foreign students; and the way words of Romance origin are dealt with in English dictionaries.
