This is a state-of-the-art Guide to the fascinating world of the lexicon and its description in various types of dictionaries.

A team of experts brings together a solid Introduction to Lexicography and leads you through decision-making processes step-by-step to compile and design dictionaries for general and specific purposes. The domains of lexicography are outlined and its specific terminology is explained in the Glossary. Each chapter provides ample suggestions for further reading. Naturally, electronic dictionaries, corpus analysis, and database management are central themes throughout the book.

The book also "introduces" questions about the many types of definition, meaning, sense relations, and stylistics. And that is not all: those afraid to embark on a dictionary adventure will find out all about the pitfalls in the chapters on Design.

A Practical Guide to Lexicography introduces and seduces you to learn about the achievements, unexpected possibilities, and challenges of modern-day lexicography.

“This Guide is certainly of great interest to dictionary makers and dictionary users: its main merit is related to the light that it sheds on technological developments that make lexicography a whole new technical domain in linguistics: potentially much richer, much more useful to all other domains in linguistics and much more user-friendly. Furthermore, the light shed on electronic dictionaries also highlights the lexicographic heritage and the lexicographers' know-how.”
“This book runs the gamut of a wide variation of topics in lexicography.”
“[...] offers a solid introduction to current lexicography. The book is user-friendly and intended to be a safe and efficient guide for those who want to know how dictonaries are made. [...] the team clearly demonstrates that in lexicography there are “universals” of dictionary production.”
“According to the words of the editor, the volume was designed as an easily accessible introduction to the world of lexicography and a reliable compass for those wishing to know how dictionaries are made. The authors have more than fulfilled these objectives. The reader is acquainted with the theory and with the state-of-the-art methods of lexicography. Each chapter provides the most current information about diverse aspects of dictionary functioning, structure, compilation, and usage. The book will become a convenient tool for lexicographers, but also for students of linguistics.”
