Description

Are dictionaries really an ultimate source of 'correct' language? "Dictionaries as Cultural Products" is the first manuscript of such volume to deal with intentional and unintentional cultural biases and limitations in lexicography. It offers both, a theoretical exploration of word meaning and a practical perspective on dictionaries in use. Although originally written as a thesis for a Master s degree in English linguistics, this revised version addresses a much broader range of readers. This book might attract not only professional linguists, but also students and teachers of English as a foreign language, as well as native speakers of English interested in explaining words through other words. In addition, this book would provide some helpful guidelines for dictionary-making in various spheres of business and education.
