Summary
Here, Lynda Mugglestone shows that there is much more to a dictionary than just lists of words and meanings. Exploring common beliefs about dictionaries, providing glimpses of dictionary makers at work, and confronting the problems of how a word is defined, this Very Short Introduction shows how dictionaries are made and how they reflect the society and culture in which they were written. --Book Jacket
