Pragmatics, Lexicography and Dictionaries of English.
Zgusta, Ladislav
World Englishes, v7 n3 p243-53 Win 1988
Details a history of the term "pragmatics" and how it influences lexicography. Three pragmatic aspects of dictionaries are discussed, including: 1) the cultural setting; 2) equivalence in bilingual dictionaries; 3) the lexicographic definition. Lexicographic definitions illustrate how a dictionary is largely based on pragmatics. (Author/LMO)
