This book unites lexicography with theoretical linguistics. The two fields tend to ignore each other; lexicographers produce dictionaries, linguists grammars. As a result grammars and dictionaries are often discordant and sometimes glaringly incompatible. In Systematic Lexicography Juri Apresjan shows the insights linguistics has to offer lexicography, and equally that the achievements and challenges of lexicography provide a rewarding field for linguistic enquiry.The author presents the vocabulary of a language as a complicated system reflecting a specific view of the world. He does so within an integrated theory of language in which descriptions of grammatical and lexical properties of language units, and the conceptualizations underlying them, interact. Each lexeme, he argues, is a point of intersection of various lexicographic types of lexemes-classes of lexemes with shared semantic, syntactic, pragmatic, or communicative properties, that aresensitive to the same rules, and which should thus be uniformly described in the dictionary. When any lexeme is viewed against the whole set of linguistic rules, new facets emerge, and these reveal, he shows, key characteristics of words that dictionaries do not currently record. Professor Apresjan not only presents an original, unified theory of language inspired by the Moscow school of semantics. He also works out its consequences and describes the problems he faced in applying it to the lexicographic and grammatical description of Russian. The reader will find that travelling with the author through Russian semantic space is both enlightening and entertaining. The book's wealth of lexical facts, illuminated by systematic thought, give it unique character andimportance. It will be of great interest to theoretical linguists and to all concerned with the writing of dictionaries, as well as to semanticists and students of Russian.

Review from previous edition The book is an attempt to bridge the gap between lexicography and theoretical linguistics by demonstrating that the two fields can successfully contribute to and supplement each other.
Juri Apresjan's book Systematic Lexicography is a very interesting and highly recommendable publication for both a practicing lexicographer and an expert in lexicographic theory. Not the least profit is to be gained by a theoretical semanticist who has never been exposed to Apresjan's stimulating and innovative ideas.
The strengths of this book are great, and mostly stem from the sheer breadth of the author's approach.
Though packed with rich and detailed subject matter, Systematic Lexicography is generally fairly easy to read, and its comprehensive indices of names, subjects, and Russian and English lexemes mean that it is also easy to use. Anyone interested in synonymy, lexicography, semantics or Russian language and culture is sure to find it a valuable resource.
This translation by Kevin Windle provides the English-speaking world with a valuable chance to gain access to the work of Apresjan and the whole school ... It is an indispensable text for both semanticists and lexicographers, as well as for scholars of Russian language and culture.
Semanticists will find Apresjan's work accessible and interesting, and his approach refreshing.
