    • The foundations of lexicography, and its interactions with other disciplines including Corpus Linguistics and Information Science;

    • Types of dictionaries, for purposes such as translation and teaching;

    • Innovative specialised dictionaries such as the Oenolex wine dictionary and the Online Dictionary of New Zealand Sign Language;

    • Lexicography and world languages, including Arabic, Hindi, Russian, Chinese, and Indonesian;

    • The future of lexicography, including the use of the Internet, user participation, and dictionary portals.

    The Routledge Handbook of Lexicography is essential reading for researchers and students working in this area.
