dc.descriptionIntroduction to Thematic Issue of the International Journal of Lexicography, ed. F. Dolezalen_US
dc.description.abstractThe ‘problems’ with devising a meaningful thematic issue on synonymy as it pertains to lexicography are much the same as considering synonymy as it pertains to the theory and practice of lexicography: (1) one can say that since absolute synonymy is rare—and when found mostly fleeting—the discussion must focus on the user’s perception of synonymy, or on the identification and treatment of partial- and near-synonymy. This then becomes a discussion of homography, polysemy, and the distinguishing of senses (etc): for example, lexical items are related to a general meaning (one entry); or they are presented in separate entries (the distinguishing of general meanings: lexical items with distinguishable general meanings); and (2) from another perspective one can say that people recognize the phenomenon, and dictionary makers exploit the user’s understanding of synonymy to create explication, and lexicographic definition.en_US
