Series Title: Applied Linguistics in Action
Description:

TEACHING AND RESEARCHING LEXICOGRAPHY
R. R. K. Hartmann, Dictionary Research Centre, University of Exeter

Who compiles dictionaries and other reference works? Which are used by whom? How do they achieve their purpose? Lexicography is a very important subject and the product of lexicography, the Dictionary, is a valuable resource in language learning.

Teaching and Researching Lexicography explains the relations between lexicographic practice (dictionary-making) and theory (dictionary research), with special reference to the perspectives of:

* dictionary history
* dictionary criticism
* dictionary typology
* dictionary structure
* dictionary use

The final section of the book contains a variety of useful resousces, including relevant related websites, a glossary of terms and a bibliography of cited dictionaries. This section can also be found on the Teaching and Researching Lexicography companion web-site.

Written in a highly accessible style, Teaching and Researching Lexicography provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date and international coverage of this field in English, and will be of great interest to lexicographers, language teachers and applied linguists.
