Title: Pedagogical Specialised Lexicography
Subtitle: The representation of meaning in English and Spanish business dictionaries
Written By: Pedro Antonio Fuertes Olivera
Ascensión Arribas-Baño
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TLRP%2011
Series Title: Terminology and Lexicography Research and Practice 11
Description:

This stimulating new book, which combines dictionary research and
linguistic knowledge, analyses the representation of meaning in business
dictionaries from a pedagogical perspective. By examining in detail the
macrostructure, mediostructure, access structure and microstructure of
eight business dictionaries, this book presents interesting findings on how
the dictionaries studied represent the 'noun-term', and on how they cope
with the principles of new lexicography that aims at solving the needs of a
specific type of user with specific types of problems related to a specific
type of user situation. This exhaustive study, which makes simultaneous
contributions to the theory of terminology, lexicography, and LSP teaching,
defends a methodological confluence between LSP lexicography and
terminology, and proposes some guiding principles towards the construction
of pedagogically-oriented specialised dictionaries that must target
students enrolled in LSP courses: Business English, Business Spanish,
Business Translation, etc.
