Meanings and Theories

Geoffrey Nunberg

Maybe we don’t take the distinction between lex/cal and encyclopedic information literally enough. What it amounts to Is a dIstlnct/ on, not between two kinds of books, exactly, but between the two kinds of authority, primary and secondary, that a source can speak with. And while I am ultimately interested In this question as It bears on lexlcal semantics, rather than lexicography, it will be easiest to make it here in terms of distinctions between different ways of defining words.
