TitleThe question of plagiarism and breach of copyright in the dictionary-making process
AbstractIn dictionary-making, normal definitions of plagiarism and copyright do not apply. A certain amount of similarity to previously published material is probably inevitable. The results of a questionnaire sent to dictionary project managers are used to show that there is little agreement or consistency in current practice regarding plagiarism. The inadequacies of the legal framework are considered, along with various ad hoc approaches to the problem. The paper concludes by calling for more cooperation between lexicographers on these matters.
