(p.107) 6 Theoretical challenges in the transition from lexicographical p-works to e-tools
Electronic Lexicography

This chapter initially discusses whether a lexicographical theory exists, is possible at all or even necessary. After giving a positive answer to all three questions, it briefly discusses the relation between lexicography and information science and argues that lexicography should be considered part and parcel of a broader consultation discipline integrated into information science, where both lexicography and information science have something to contribute and learn from each other. The chapter proceeds to a critical discussion of the true advantages of e-lexicography and the possibility of individualizing future lexicographical e-tools based upon methods and technologies taken from information science. In this light and according to new criteria, the chapter finally classifies existing lexicographical works on electronic platforms into four main categories and present a new approach to the much debated question of the amount of data to be included in lexicographical e-tools.

Keywords:   e-lexicography, e-dictionaries, lexicographical e-tools, consultation discipline, information science, lexicographical individualization, data amount, metalexicography, theory
