The paper focuses on the mutual relations between linguistics and lexicograph Against the background of etymology and comparative-historical linguistic studies and using , words 'lexical' and 'culture' as examples, an attempt is made to demonstrate the relevance of morphology, grammar and semantics to the descriptionption of vocabulary and its lexicographic codification. Issues of intra lingual variety and interlingual diversity can now also be addressed Within the theoretical framework of contrastive textology, supported by computer-aided parallel text corpus analysis. However, lexicography is not entirely dependent on the results of linguistic research; it needs to move on and develop its own theoretical base. Recent progress in four fields of dictionary research has indeed contributed to an international upsurge of 'lexical culture'.
