The main aim of this volume, a collection of contributions by different authors, is to illustrate that dictionary making draws on other disciplines, and that lexicographical practice, in its turn, can feed neighbouring disciplines. The authors assert that linguistics is the basic discipline underlying lexicography, but the practice of dictionary making can, vice versa, expose problems of language analysis and especially crucial features of language, which should be taken into consideration in language theory.
