Dictionary criticism in Scandinavia
What is it about?
This paper examines reviews of dictionaries published by the journal LexicoNordica from about 2002 to about 2016. The findings show that dictionary reviews (not review articles) are generally thorough academic texts of a high quality and that reviewers address several relevant topics in their reviews.
Why is it important?
The findings show that reviewers (and journal editors) value informative and academic reviews and that dictionary reviews are merely derivative work but genuine academic texts.
