TitleDictionaries: Notions and Expectations
AbstractThis paper is concerned with popular perceptions in Britain about dictionaries. Its main focus is on ways in which these perceptions can be gauged: surveys of and comments by individuals; corpus data; and evidence drawn from the media. There are implications with respect to issues of ideology and lexicography, and also with respect to perceptions about the lexicon.
