Aspects of syntactic information in descriptionptive Afrikaans dictionaries. Syntactic information is not presented in a consistent manner in the articles of lexical and multilexical lemmas in descriptionptive Afrikaans dictionaries. New terminology and information resulting from lingtJstic research are seldom portrayed. Three slots for syntactic information in the article of a leIrimaare suggested: a slot for a lexical item classification, a slot for information on the typical syntactic behaviour of a lemma and a third slot for usage examples in which explicit information on non-typical syntactic behaviour is provided. Ways are suggested for the presentation of syntactic information in the articles of multilexicallemmas. Practical proposals are made for the reflection of new terminology and information resulting from linguistic research.
