TitleShakespeare Lexicography. Trends of development (XVIII-XX cc.)
AbstractThe aim of my work is to give a comprehensive picture of the development of Shakespeare lexicography during the past three centuries. More than 100 reference books compiled in different lexicographic forms (concordance, index, glossary and lexicon) have been analysed beginning from reference books with a limited prescriptive corpus of mainly "significant", "hard" or "remarkable" words up to a universal and complete registrative Shakespeare dictionary which combines the best features of all existing lexicographic forms. The analysis gives exhaustive material for a typology of Shakespeare dictionaries, i.e. a Shakespeare lexicography map.
