Leksikografiens grunnenhet − hva heter det, dette vi lager ordbokartikler om?
A dictionary article has a word (often called entry or, in Norwegian, oppslagsord) as its title, but normally also deals with other forms of that word: inflection forms, spelling variants etc., more specifically a group of words that the lexicographer deems to be sufficiently related to merit a dictionary article under a common title. This word group – and not the entry itself – determines the article’s range, and the criteria for this kind of grouping are fundamental to lexicography’s way of systemizing a language’s word mass. The author suggests that Nordic lexicography seems to lack a common designation for this kind of word group, and invites colleagues in Scandinavia to join in on selecting an appropriate term.
