In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

PREFACE Dictionaries welcomes essays, notes, and reviews concerned with monolingual and bilingual lexicography, including proposals for new dictionaries, reports describing dictionaries in progress, and a range of historical studies of dictionaries and the lexicographers who made them. Our audience includes professional dictionary-makers, book collectors, scholars interested in lexicography , and a wide range of readers whose curiosity encompasses dictionaries and their role in the language culture of the communities that produced them. Before submitting completed essays, contributors are advised to provide the Editor with a brief outline or abstract of the proposed submission. Since the journal is now published annually, the Editor will advise contributors of the likelihood of their work appearing in the next forthcoming issue. Articles and reviews in English or French will be considered for publication. AU finished contributions should be submitted in duplicate on standard &'A ? 11 bond paper and be accompanied by sufficient postage to allow their return to the author. Matters of format and citation should follow the principles of the MLA Handbook (New York: The Modern Language Association, 1977). If special typefaces, illustrations, or reproductions of printed books are to be included, authors should consult the Editor at an early stage to ensure that the best quality reproduction can be obtained. The Editor, assisted by the publications committee and invited referees, will inform contributors promptly of the acceptance or rejection of a proposed article or review. Whenever possible, a critique of the submission will be provided. Contributors should recognize the variety of our readers by clarifying technical terms or historical details; they should also understand that excellence of style is always expected. Quotation of the work of others must be accurate and accompanied by a complete citation in the style described in the MLA Handbook. All contributors are expected to be members of the Dictionary Society of North America during the year in which their submissions are published. All published contributions will be copyrighted by the Society. Fees received for reprintings will be divided equally with authors. Offprints will not be provided by the Society will allow reproduction of an author's contribution for professional or classroom use. Lacking sufficient numbers of essays for a 1980 volume, I have taken the opportunity to compile this double number (a collection produced more economically than would have been the case if two numbers had been published separately). I do, however, apologize for the delay in publication to the membership of the Society and to those authors who submitted essays in 1980. In producing this number of the journal, I have been assisted by Robin Melanie Fosheim (who prepared and shaped the text for computer-processing), david Rodgers of the University of Michigan Computer Center, the computer and its attendants at Huron Valley Graphics, and Susan LeVan (for the cover design).
