This is a catalog of more than 2,300 pre-1900 English-language dictionary titles in the Warren N. and Suzanne B. Cordell Collection of Dictionaries at Indiana State University in Terre Haute. The most comprehensive collection of Western language dictionaries in the world, the Cordell Collection was begun in 1961 by the late Warren N. Cordell, a marketing research executive with a deep love for and appreciation of the study of words. From the beginning, however, old English-language dictionaries formed the core of the Cordell collection, and this catalog documents the comprehensive nature of these holdings. The collection aims at completeness, with every variant copy of interest included. The format of the entries consists of seven basic parts: main entry, title, publication statement, collation, notes, provenance, and references. A subject index is provided for those interested in dictionaries for particular topics.

Lexicographica. Series Maior features monographs and edited volumes on the topics of lexicography and meta-lexicography. Works from the broader domain of lexicology are also included, provided they strengthen the theoretical, methodological and empirical basis of lexicography and meta-lexicography. The almost 150 books published in the series since its founding in 1984 clearly reflect the main themes and developments of the field. The publications focus on aspects of lexicography such as micro- and macrostructure, typology, history of the discipline, and application-oriented lexicographical documentation.

Thoroughly revised and updated with some 500 new entries- including the addition of pertinent Internet sites-this is the only bibliographic guide to information sources for linguistics. Coverage spans from 1957 to the present, and DeMiller's detailed citations describe and evaluate each work, often offering comparisons to similar titles. Essential to the research and study of general or theoretical linguistics, the book is also indispensable in related areas.
