This is the first book to give a full and readable account of how dictionaries are made. It is both a general introduction to lexicography and a systematic guide to lexicographic methods. Included are sections on treatment of pronunciation, inflection, constructions, collocations, and idioms; the structure of entries and their arrangement in a dictionary; and the planning, execution, and monitoring of a dictionary project. Practical Lexicography demonstrates how both one-language and two-language dictionaries are written, the ways in which materials are selected, arranged, and explained, and how computers have revolutionized the making of dictionaries.
