The book contains a collection of works devoted to the most topical issues of modern linguistics, including cross-cultural communication, various aspects of theoretical and practical lexicography, terminology and terminography. Papers contributed are divided into four major sections. Cultural Aspects in Different Linguistic and Lexicographic Traditions deals with analysis of cultural aspects of language and lexicography with special reference to English, Russian, German, French, Arabic and other languages. User's Perspective and Dictionary Use is devoted to discussion of research results in the field of user's needs and demands received during social surveys in different countries. Terminology and Terminography reveals the latest tendencies in modern terminology formation, scientific knowledge engineering in languages for special purposes and professional communication, while New Dictionaries Projects presents models of new reference works. All those and many other topics were discussed at the VI-th International School-Seminar Lexicon, Lexicography, Terminography in Russian, American and Other Cultures held at Ivanovo State University, Russia, September 12-14, 2005.
