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 dictionarymakers , 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. All finished contributions should be submitted in duplicate on standard 8 Vi ? 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 articles or review. Whenever possible, a critque 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. AU 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 author. Offprints will not be provided by the Society will allow reproduc- tion of an author's contribution for professional or classroom use. Once again Dictionaries has appeared some months later than the projected publication date. I regret the delay and appreciate the prompt return of proofs from the contributors. Now that Dictionaries is becoming recognized as an important journal in lexicographical studies, I hope to receive more submissions by midsummer so the Society may circulate copies by December of the publication year. In producing this number of the Journal, I have again been assisted by Robin Melanie Fosheim. Richard W. Bailey Department of English The University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109 vi ...
