TitleAt the Beginning of a Compilation of a New Monolingual Dictionary of Czech (A Report on a New Lexicographic Project)
AbstractThe aim of the article is to present the new lexicographic project that is being implemented at the Institute of the Czech Language of the Academy of Sciences of the CR, v. v. i. Since 2012, its Department of Contemporary Lexicology and Lexicography has worked on the creation of a new medium-sized monolingual dictionary of Czech with the working title Akademický slovník současné češtiny (The Academic Dictionary of Contemporary Czech). With its size and method of treatment, the dictionary ranks among academic dictionaries, i.e. dictionaries with an elaborated, standardised and structured explanation of the meaning of lexical units, with an adequately rich exemplification documenting the typical use of lexical units, with a sufficiently elaborated description of the basic semantic relations, mainly synonymy and antonymy, with the appropriate description of the grammatical properties of lexical units and with usage labels (a description of the stylistic, temporal, spatial, frequency and pragmatic markedness) of lexical units.
