Lexicography Then and Now: Selected Essays

Mixed media product
This volume represents the lexicographic facet of the multifaceted scholar, Professor Zgusta: The editorial goal was to arrange the articles according to topic and then to construct a continuous narrative of ideas from the collected works while preserving some of the distinctiveness of individual articles. Zgusta's work reminds us that within the most up-to-date description of language there is also historical depth. The reader of this book will enter a narrative of wide historical and textual scope while engaging an analysis of dictionaries and lexicographic principles.
