Unity in multiplicity. Constitutive and typological features of dictionaries

Summary/Abstract: The article is a trial to extract the category of dictionaries from the entirety of publications and to differentiate this category by means of typological features. The author has used multilingual literature on the subject as well as his own observations (for almost twenty years the author has been studying lexicography in academic and editing aspects). The article shows that neither the category of dictionaries in total nor its subcategories have distinctive limits because in the past dictionaries had to (which is still true today) perform different functions. These determinants lead to a question about lexicography’s future which is discussed in the final part of the article.
