Aspekte van sintaktiese inligting in verklarende Afrikaanse woordeboeke

W.F. Botha


English Title: Aspects of syntactic information in descriptive Afrikaans dictionaries 

English Abstract

Syntactic information is not presented in a consistent manner in the articles of lexical and multilexical lemmas in descriptive Afrikaans dictionaries. New terminology and information resulting from linguistic research are seldom portrayed. Three slots for syntactic information in the article of a lemma are suggested: a slot for a lexical item classification, a slot for information on the typical syntactic behaviour of a lemma and a third slot for usage examples in which explicit information on non-typical syntactic behaviour is provided. Ways are suggested for the presentation of syntactic information in the articles of multilexical lemmas. Practical proposals are made for the reflection of new terminology and information resulting from linguistic research.

Keywords: adjunct, fixed expressions, lexical item classification, loan-word phrases, multilexical lemmas, non-typical syntactic behaviour, prepositional phrases, syntactic information, typical syntactic behaviour
