Sample text

A text block can include one article or a cluster of articles. Such a cluster will necessarily contain sublemmata, cf. Wiegand (1989). Dictionaries have often been characterised and dominated by a word-bias, cf. Gouws (1989, 1991). This has led to a situation where the macrostrutural selection has only focused on words and not on lexical items smaller than words or lexical items consisting of more than one word. A lexical-based approach to the macrostructure emphasises the need to lemmatise all the different types of lexical items.

The application of the second approach leads to an alphabetical ordering. This typically prevails in general monolingual and bilingual dictionaries as well as in the majority   Chapter 1. Foundations of LSP dictionaries. In the remainder of this chapter the focus will only be on dictionaries with an alphabetical ordering. An alphabetical ordering does not necessarily imply a homogeneous presentation of all the lemmata. The most uncomplicated version of an alphabetical macrostructure is straight alphabetical ordering.

Meta-lexicography More light can be shed on the interaction between the dictionary and its users when researchers try to systematically adopt the user’s point of view when analysing or reviewing specific lexicographical products. This type of approach is now generally called meta-lexicography. It is a form of criticism of existing dictionaries where the reference skills and the language needs of a specific user group are taken as the point of departure. An important number of studies has been devoted to what has been termed the learner’s dictionary, a type of monolingual dictionary that is especially conceived for non-native speakers of a language.
