Review / 3: Donata Feroldi ed Elena Dal Pra, Dizionario Analogico della lingua italiana, Zanichelli, Bologna 2012 pp. 960

by Carla Marello

This is a new analogical Italian language dictionary with 4000 headings containing lexical material on basic fundamental Italian terms. The list of words under each heading is organised with a predefined index system for direct access to the lexical subgroup linked with the term in question. As well as the traditional Aristotelian classification of types, places, parts, persons, characteristics, actions, there is also a RELATED TO index with a large amount of data from corpus-based research in the Biblioteca Italiana Zanichelli and the digitalised archives of certain Italian newspapers.
