Spanish Language Dictionaries

The course introduces a modern and historical panorama of Spanish language dictionaries. The course will include a theoretical introduction to lexicography and the production of dictionaries; in this way it will establish a foundation for lexical commentary. We will analyze the most important Spanish language dictionaries, starting with the bilingual Nebrija dictionaries to the Pan-Hispanic dictionary of the RAE (Real Academia Española -Spanish Real Academia-), which will be used as the reference text. Lastly, the course will finish the study of theory by using databases that facilitate the production of dictionaries. (1 unit)
