Neologisms and general dictionaries. The article presents a survey that was carried out among
editors at Kunnskapsforlaget concerning neologisms in the Norwegian language. The editors were
asked to mark which of the neologisms they would insert in general monolingual dictionaries. At

and commercial lexicographers and encyclopaedia editors evaluate which neologisms are
