TitleLexical systems and lexical domains as measures of accessibility, consistency and efficiency of lexical information in dictionaries
AbstractThis paper gives an account of a small-scale empirical study on the accessibility, consistency and efficiency of lexical information in a number of monolingual dictionaries. The measures of analysis and comparison are the Lexical System and the Lexical Domain, which are among the most important cognitive/ semantic structuring principles of the theoretical lexicon in a grammar called "TCM" for 'Two-Cycle Model of Grammar". These principles may be of great help not only in the analysis of dictionaries, but also for lexicographers and the users of dictionaries, especially student translators.
