Abstract


The WAT's sensitivity to criticism is evident from the fact that none of the main points of criticism against the first eight volumes is repeated in the criticism of volumes IX and X. Encyclopedic treatment of lexical items, complexity or incomprehensibility of meaning descriptions, ill-judged use of citations, slow alphabetic progress and the absence of full pronunciation guidance therefore do not feature in the criticism on volumes IX and X. The article gives an overview of the main points of criticism against the ninth and tenth volumes and discusses the way in which the WAT reacted to the criticism in subsequent volumes. In instances where valid critique was disregarded, or where the critique was not accompanied by practical solutions, adaptations are suggested. In this way, the interaction between lexicographic theory and practice becomes a dynamic process.

Die WAT se sensitiwiteit vir kritiek blyk duidelik uit die feit dat geeneen van die hoofpunte van kritiek ten opsigte van die eerste ag dele in die kritiek op dele IX en X herhaal word nie. Ensiklopediese behandeling van leksikale items, die ingewikkeldheid of onverstaanbaarheid van betekenisverklarings, die ondeurdagte aanwending van voorbeeldmateriaal, stadige alfabetiese vordering en die afwesigheid van volledige uitspraakleiding figureer derhalwe nie in die kritiek op dele IX en X nie. Die artikel gee 'n oorsig van die hoofpunte van kritek op dele IX en X en bespreek hoe die WAT in daaropvolgende dele op die kritiek gereageer het. In gevalle waar daar nie op geldige kritiek ag geslaan is nie, of waar die kritiek nie met praktiese voorstelle gepaardgegaan het nie, word aanpassings aan die hand gedoen. Sodoende word die wisselwerking tussen leksikografiese teorie en praktyk 'n dinamiese proses.
