Sixteen case studies of dictionaries that reveal interesting ideological stances: antiquity, Greece medieval and modern, modern European Languages and societies. The planned development of Afrikaans from an transplanted variety of Dutch into a standard language of its own. The unifying role of dictionaries and of the script in the development of Chinese dialects and of the standard languages, classical and modern.
