Potere e autorità nei dizionari
by Eva Nossem
This paper aims at bringing together queer approaches and lexicography, i.e. a critical heteronormativity research within the field of theoretical lexicography and practical dictionary making. The analysis focuses on power and authority in dictionaries. Power and authority do not only influence the process of dictionary making but are also produced by the dictionaries themselves. The author supports these theoretical reflections with practical examples taken from existing dictionaries.
