Abstract

This book serves as a welcome addition to the better known <i>English Dictionary from Cawdrey to Johnson, 1604-1755</i>, by Starnes &amp; Noyes (new edition published by Benjamins 1991). Whereas Starnes &amp; Noyes describe the history of English lexicography as an evolutionary progress-by-accumulation process, Professor Hayashi focuses on issues of method and theory, starting with John Palsgrave&#8217;s <i>Lesclarissement de la langue francoyse</i> (1530), to John Walker&#8217;s <i>A Critical Pronouncing Dictionary and Expositor of the English Language</i> (1791). This book also includes a detailed discussion of Dr. Johnson&#8217;s influential <i>Dictionary of the English Language</i> (1755).

Subjects: Germanic linguistics; Lexicography; History of linguistics; English linguistics
