Den Gegenstand des Handbuches bildet die Lexikographie und die Wörterbuchforschung, und letztere präsentiert sich in den drei Teilbänden erstmals in ihren verschiedenen Ausprägungen mit einem großen Reichtum an Details, doch zugleich in einer zusammenhängenden und umfassenden Weise: 248 Autoren haben in den Sprachen Deutsch, Englisch und Französisch 349 Artikel geschrieben, welche auf 38 Kapitel verteilt sind. Die Zielsetzung des Handbuches, die sich aus der Lage der Lexikographie und dem Forschungsstand der örterbuchforschung ergibt, ist es die Lexikographie aller Sprachkreise der Erde zu registrieren sowie die der größeren Sprachen, und hier besonders die der europäischen und die ihrer Varietäten, detailliert darzustellen, den Status und die Funktion von lexikographischen Nachschlagewerken, insonderheit die von Sprachwörterbüchern in ihren unterschiedlichen Typen innerhalb der Kultursysteme von Gesellschaften zu beschreiben, die Geschichte der Lexikographie an Beispielen größerer Kulturen zu entwerfen, auf der Grundlage der Kenntnis der gesellschaftlichen Funktionen von Wörterbüchern und der Buchgeschichte und unter Berücksichtigung von Theorien über den Aufbau des Lexikons und seine Stellung im Sprachganzen Ausschnitte zu einer Allgemeinen Theorie der Lexikographie zu liefern, die Methodik der Lexikographie für alle Phasen des lexikographischen Prozesses, von der äußeren Arbeitsorganisation der Wörterbuchkanzleien bis hin zu methodischen Einzelverfahren unter Berücksichtigung des Computereinsatzes darzustellen und weiterzuentwickeln, auf die Unterschiede zwischen den realistischen Möglichkeiten und der gegebenen Realität der lexikographischen Praxis hinzuweisen und aus der Kenntnis von lexikographischen Defiziten Möglichkeiten für qualitative Verbesserungen und aussichtsreiche Perspektiven für neue lexikographische Projekte und metalexikographische Forschungen aufzuzeigen, die primäre und sekundäre Literatur möglichst breit und zuverlässig zu dokumentieren und insgesamt nachhaltig dazu beizutragen, daß die moderne wissenschaftliche Lexikographie zu einer von Wissenschaftlern lehrbaren und von Studenten lernbaren praxisorientierten Disziplin entwickelt wird.

History of Oxford University Press, 1970-2004

Author: Keith Robbins

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199574790

Category: History

Page: 864

The story of Oxford University Press spans five centuries of printing and publishing. Beginning with the first presses set up in Oxford in the fifteenth century and the later establishment of a university printing house, it leads through the publication of bibles, scholarly works, and the Oxford English Dictionary, to a twentieth-century expansion that created the largest university press in the world, playing a part in research, education, and language learning in more than 50 countries. With access to extensive archives, the four-volume History of OUP traces the impact of long-term changes in printing technology and the business of publishing. It also considers the effects of wider trends in education, reading, and scholarship, in international trade and the spreading influence of the English language, and in cultural and social history - both in Oxford and through its presence around the world. In the decades after 1970 Oxford University Press met new challenges but also a period of unprecedented growth. In this concluding volume, Keith Robbins and 21 expert contributors assess OUP's changing structure, its academic mission, and its business operations through years of economic turbulence and continuous technological change. The Press repositioned itself after 1970: it brought its London Business to Oxford, closed its Printing House, and rapidly developed new publishing for English language teaching in regions far beyond its traditional markets. Yet in an increasingly competitive worldwide industry, OUP remained the department of a major British university, sharing its commitment to excellence in scholarship and education. The resulting opportunities and sometimes tensions are traced here through detailed consideration of OUP's business decisions, the vast range of its publications, and the dynamic role of its overseas offices. Concluding in 2004 with new forms of digital publishing, The History of OUP sheds new light on the cultural, educational, and business life of the English-speaking world in the late twentieth century.
