Hans-Dieter Kreuder. Metasprachliche Lexikographie: Untersuchungen zur Kodifizierung der linguistischen Terminologie

Maria Smit


This publication, which results from Kreuder's "Habilitationsschrift" of 2001 at
the University of Marburg, investigates the development of terminological reference
works in Germany within the field of linguistics, and approaches in the
compilation of these works. Kreuder (2003: 3) defines "special-field terms in linguistics"
or "linguistic terminology" as those terms belonging to a special class
of lexical items on a metalinguistic level by means of which information about
language can be conveyed. His main aim is to determine how linguists and
lexicographers presented special-field linguistic terms up to the late 1990s, and
to establish the usability of a wide range of especially German linguistic dictionaries
with regard to the needs of the intended users. In this investigation,
the conceptual strong points and weak points of the dictionaries under discussion
are specifically mentioned.
