Abstract

Imagine the potentially frequent occasion when you are puzzled as to who exactly might be responsible for which entry in which dictionary. This potentially complex question might well lead to the realisation that what you need is a source book that could provide information of this kind, and − more specifically − which lexicographers have been involved in its making, which kind of reference work we are concerned with, which publishers have been responsible for its production, which kind of information has been treated, what makes it so special and how research could have contributed to improving the compilation process and its resulting text.
