We are pleased to announce the publication of the special issue of the Slovenščina 2.0 journal, dedicated to lexicography (http://www.trojina.org/slovenscina2.0/en/arhiv/2014-2/). The issue provides a snapshot of contemporary activity in the European lexicographic community, and which gives some pointers to the directions in which the field is moving. Six papers deal with topics such as the transfer or conceptualization of dictionary for the digital medium, different options of visualizing lexical information, choosing a dictionary-writing system and the use of a corpus and search logs in choosing headwords. Three papers (in Slovene) shed some light on the Slovene lexicographic situation by comparing the recently-published second edition of the Dictionary of Literary Slovene with its predecessor, evaluating a newly launched dictionary portal Fran, and discussing the move away from Slovenian lexicographic tradition in aspects, dictated by state-of-the-art lexicographic theory and practice.
