Abstract

Die 28ste uitgawe van Lexikos bevestig weer eens sy status as ware internasionale tydskrif met sy wortels in Afrika. Hierdie jaar se uitgawe bevat bydraes uit België, Serwië, Slowenië, China, Spanje en Pole. Die navorsing waaroor daar gerapporteer word, strek van historiese leksikografie, oor hedendaagse vraagstukke in die leksikografie, tot vooruitskouings oor wat die toekoms vir dié dissipline inhou. Leksikograwe is duidelik bewus van die bedreigings, maar ook van die geleenthede wat die elektroniese media vir die leksikografie inhou. As redakteur is ek egter besorg oor die gebrek aan artikels oor die Afrikataalleksikografie in Suid-Afrika. Die feit dat ons elf amptelike tale het waarvan tien Afrikatale is, bied 'n rykdom navorsingsgeleenthede aan beide praktiese en teoretiese leksikograwe, en ek wil ons plaaslike leksikograwe aanmoedig om hul kennis en kundigheid met die res van die leksikografiegemeenskap te deel.


The 28th edition of Lexikos once again confirms its status as a true international journal with its roots in Africa. This year's edition contains contributions from Belgium, China, Slovenia, Serbia, Spain and Poland. The research reported on range from historical lexicography, through current issues in lexicography, to predictions on what the future holds for this discipline. Lexicographers are clearly very aware of both the challenges and the opportunities offered by the electronic media. Of some concern to me as editor though, is the dearth of articles dealing specifically with African language lexicography in South Africa. Having eleven official languages, of which ten are African languages, offers a wealth of research opportunities to both practical and theoretical lexicographers, and I would like to encourage our local lexicographers to share their knowledge and expertise with the rest of the lexicographic community.
