A New English–Serbian Dictionary of Sports Terms in the Light of Contemporary Challenges
AbstractThis paper deals with theoretical and practical aspects of the recently published Novi englesko–srpski rečnik sportskih termina [Eng. A New English–Serbian Dictionary of Sports Terms] (Milić et al. 2021). The aim is to shed light on solutions that have given rise to innovations in Serbian lexicography. Following the theoretical underpinnings of the lexicographic model and its description, the discussion centers on resolving macrostructural and microstructural issues that could not be brought into accordance with the existing lexicographic and lexicological norms. The problematic issues dealt with include the morphosyntax of headwords, the adaptation of Japanese-based and gymnastics terms from English into Serbian, and the Dictionary's medium in the digital era. The current research builds on previous works from 2017 to 2021, the main result of which was the publication of the Dictionary. Keywords: dictionary, English, Serbian, lexicography, lexicology, sport, standardization, term, terminology
