TitleSlavic Slang Lexicography
AbstractThe paper considers specific problems concerning slang dictionaries in Slavic countries. Some shortcomings are pointed out, as well as differences between the standard languages and their social dialects. The most important difficulties encountered in the process of compiling a dictionary of slang are examined, such as: the size of the dictionary, the list of the words included, the form of the headwords, lexico-semantic relations, difficulties caused by the specific Slavic system of the verbal aspect and the gender of the nouns, etc. Some solutions in the light of the lexicographic experience of the author are proposed.
