AFTER 'EMPTY TALK' AND 'WORDS, WORDS, WORDS', THE 'REST IS SILENCE': WELL-KNOWN QUOTATIONS IN THE DICTIONARY - THE PRINCIPLES OF CHOICE, SOURCES, PROPOSAL OF DESCRIPTION
Languages of publication
The article begins with remarks on the categorisation of well-known quotations from literary sources. The main part of the article presents descriptions of such quotations in six contemporary general-usage dictionaries (four of them are Polish, one of them is English and one of them is French) and proposes further descriptions for the new great Polish dictionary. Principles for selecting quotations and determining their sources will also be included. After all, such quotations have various structures, so they belong to different levels of language, and their description and location in general dictionary entries must depend upon their function.
