In what sense is the Louw/Nida dictionary authoritative?

  • Willem S. Vorster

Abstract

This essay deals with four factors which make the Louw/Nida dictionary authoritative. These include the presentation of lexical meanings in semantic domains, the definition of meanings, the distinction that is made between meaning and reference, and the layout of the dictionary. All factors a re discussed critically and examples of where the dictionary fails are given.
