This book looks at current research and future directions in e-lexicography. Online dictionaries and reference tools are increasingly prevalent in a digitized and internet-led era in language study that has embraced computational linguistics. This book responds with theoretical and practical analysis of key topics, from a global range of contributors.
Since COBUILD in the 1980s, lexicographers have found it essential to engage with and utilize electronic computational tools. Internet dictionaries, online reference tools and even search engine optimization demand a knowledge of electronic lexicography and force a reassessment of the field. This volume looks at, amongst other topics:
Polyfunctional versus monofunctional dictionary tools
Developing theories of lexicography for electronic mediums
Distinguishing between the database and the dictionary
Online dictionaries not as data repositories but as sophisticated search engines
This volume will appeal to scholars inlexicography and to practicing lexicographers.
