Abstract


Hierdie artikel bepleit die belangrikheid van die leesprogram as die kernsaak in die leksikografiese proses. Dit is hoofsaaklik 'n praktiese artikel wat stategieë vir die ontwikkeling en implementering van 'n leesprogram vir eentalige leksikografie skets. Die argumente word ondersteun deur teorie, saam met 'n ondersoek na die dataversamelingsprosedures wat deur die Dictionary Unit for South African English (DSAE) gevolg word en 'n oorsig van die huidige praktyk by belangrike Engelse woordeboekeenhede oor die hele wêreld, naamlik die Oxford English Dictionary, die Canadian Oxford Dictionary, die Australian National Dictionary Centre en die New Zealand Dictionary Centre. Die leesprogram van die DSAE word eers omskryf en geplaas binne sy missiestelling.

This article argues the importance of the reading programme as the pivotal issue in the lexicographic process. It is essentially a practical article which outlines strategies for developing and implementing a reading programme for monolingual lexicography. The arguments are informed by theory, together with an examination of the data-collection procedures followed by the Dictionary Unit for South African English (DSAE) and a survey of current practice in major English dictionary units around the world, namely the Oxford English Dictionary, the Canadian Oxford Dictionary, the Australian National Dictionary Centre and the New Zealand Dictionary Centre. The reading programme for the DSAE is first defined and contextualized within its mission statement.
