Lexikografi kontra lingvistik?

  • Henrik Nikula


In this paper my own experiences as a linguist deeply interested in lexicography constitute the starting point of the discussion. Lexicographers as well as linguists try to describe the vocabulary of language. Linguists, however, try to describe words as elements of the mental lexicon, whereas lexicographers try to create texts designed to make it possible for dictionary users to understand and to integrate words in their own mental lexicon. In the article some examples are given in order to show how dictionary descriptions can inspire theoretical linguistic analysis.
