Title‘Banja’ and ‘besjbol’ in Finnish context: making a dictionary of realk
AbstractA research project called FINREALIA was started at the University of Tampere to create a translator's database and compile a Finnish-Russian dictionary of culture-bound words in Finnish. This paper discusses some theoretical and practical problems involved in this kind of lexicography in a small country. A short report of the work in process will be presented. More attention will be paid to general questions: the role of a dictionary of realia among other dictionaries, and the concept of realia Itself, as well as how to define the criteria for the selection of entries.
