TitleA Methodological Framework for Making a Dictionary of Discriminative Synonymies in Croatian
AbstractThe Croatian monolingual lexicography misses different types of dictionaries either in printed or in electronic form. One of the mostly missing is the dictionary of discriminative synonymies. This paper discusses a methodological framework for making such a dictionary. The macrostructure and the microstructure of the dictionary are proposed. The macrostructure is based on contemporary theoretical postulates of metalexicography. The proposed structure of lexicographical entries is thoroughly described. It is shown that lexicographical sources are not sufficient for.synonymous ranges creation. In this context the corpus importance is emphasized, particularly for the inclusion of new members in the synonymous ranges. The exclusive criteria for ordering of the members in a synonymous range are the sameness or similarity in the meaning with the headword. The proposed model of the dictionary of discriminative synonymies in Croatian is illustrated by three examples, each presenting different part of speech.
