Contrastive Lexicology.
Hartmann, R. R. K.
This paper deals with the relation between etymologically related words in different languages. A survey is made of seven stages in the development of contrastive lexicology. These are: prelinguistic word studies, semantics, lexicography, translation, foreign language learning, bilingualism, and finally contrastive analysis. Concerning contrastive analysis, the following problems are discussed: thesauri of entire vocabularies; classification of lexical hierarchies; taxonomic structure of specialized terminology; and lexico-semantic relationships. By way of conclusion, practical implications of contrastive analysis are discussed. (AM)
