Théodore Robertson's version of Roget's Thesaurus is analysed as a faithful translation into French because it fitted perfectly into the pedagogic programme of the French grammarian. However, its impact on French lexicography was very small. Julio Casares' so-called dictionnaire analogique is presented as the Romance version of a topical dictionary (dictionnaire idéologique) which unites the ideational and the alphabetical order. The so-called ‘thesaurus dictionary’ by March, which was published in the US at the beginning of the 20th century, and quite modern dictionaries of synonyms follow the same mixed technique of an integrated topical and alphabetical arrangement.

Keywords:   Romance, Théodor Robertson, French, European lexicography, dictionnaire analogique
