In learner lexicography, there has been a tradition of focusing on general-language learner's dictionaries, not least the well-known monolingual English learner's dictionaries. However, with the information and knowledge society, increasing attention is now being paid to various types of specialised dictionaries, including specialised dictionaries for learners. Many (language) learners need assistance from dictionaries not just to cope with situations that involve use of everyday language; very often, they have a need for dictionary assistance for coping with problems in the process of learning a specific LSP or a specific subject field. It is therefore essential that pedagogical LSP lexicography be promoted to a status that equals the more traditional lexicographic disciplines. This volume of articles is a major contribution to that endeavour.
