Abstract:[Romanian Modern Explanatory Dictionaries. Scientific References]
The paper aims to analyze how the main Romanian explanatory dictionaries deal with certain categories of nouns, which also implies a more precise glossary, and, implicitly, an adequate circumscription within the scientific taxonomies. In this case, we referred to the bird class and conducted a case study, referring specifically to the word Aquila. In the first stage of the analysis, we made a description of the general features characterizing the explanatory dictionaries and at the same time the essence of their complexity. In the second stage, I followed how the chosen word is dealt with in the main Romanian explanatory dictionaries, but also the sources that they used for the description and scientific classification of the referent. We have found that sometimes the dictionaries prefer to inspire each other, without the need to validate information from a scientific aortic in the field. This leads to inconsistencies between modern scientific acquisitions and information presented in dictionaries. On the other hand, the imperfections contained in the dictionaries are natural. They are due, on the one hand, to the immanent complexity of these glossaries, but also to a lexicographic inertia in relation to the sources of information substantiation. The inclusion of cutting-edge information from areas as varied as contemporary reality implies inherent difficulties, sometimes reflected by foreign dictionaries with a long tradition. We believe that these difficulties could be overcome, at least in part, by maintaining a permanent contact with specialists, and by refreshing the information sources of the dictionaries concerned.
