Lemman och ekvivalenter i nya roller – en reviderad ordbokstypologi
The source language–target language dichotomy is not valid in the electronic dictionary, where information units in the target language are just as accessible as units in the source language. In this article, the consequences of multiple access in bilingual lexicography and its implications for dictionary typology are discussed. Focus lies on the representation of the target language vocabulary – more precisely on the coverage of the Swedish target language in the online Icelandic–Swedish Islex dictionary. The equivalent lacunas observed are partly due to discrepancies in the lexical structure of the languages involved, partly to the outdated role played by Swedish as target language in the dictionary.
