Trends in twenty-five years of academic lexicography

Gilles-Maurice de Schryver UGent (2012) INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF LEXICOGRAPHY. 25(4). p.464-506
abstract
Two dedicated lexicographic corpora are presented. The first contains all the material published in IJL to date--the English component 3.5 million words strong, with a time-depth of twenty-five years. The second contains the English contents from all the major lexicographic journals, manuals, encyclopaedia, conference proceedings and some books--16.5 million words in all, with a time-depth of fifty years. Keywords and keyness values are calculated through a comparison with the 100-million-word BNC, and trends in both the IJL corpus and the lexicographic reference corpus are drawn up and compared with one another. This procedure provides for an unbiased view of the major scholars and topics in academic lexicography over the past twenty-five years, down to fifty years for some aspects, with an indication of their impact through time.
