Sprachliche Ausgrenzung in der deutschsprachigen Lexikographie

From the journal Lexicographica


After a general introduction to questions of the philosophy of language, this essay examines the verbal making of ideologies and the way dictionaries and lexicographers have their stake in it. On the basis of historical and modern dictionaries strategies of exclusion are made visible by analyzing the information program and its positions, ranging from the overall selection of the entry word, the explanation, the onomasiological information to the quotations. The close reading of the dictionary entries shows not only the fact that lexicographers leave their ideological mark on their articles but stresses that they have a unique communicative responsibility.
