This article offers an account of a pioneering project in the lexicographic description of recent Anglicisms in Serbian, the main result of which was the publication of a dictionary, entitled Du yu speak anglosrpski? Rečnik novijih anglicizama (Vasić et al. 2001). The discussion includes the following topics: (a) a typological identification of this dictionary, (b) a detailed presentation of a checklist of twenty-five problems which the authors had to address and the solutions which they implemented, regarding strategic decisions about the dictionary and aspects of its macrostructure, microstructure and graphic design, (c) a critical appraisal of the merits, demerits and implications of this dictionary and the entire project, and (d) an assessment of the future prospects of the dictionary.
