They are examined in a variety of textual contexts by trained,
intelligent lexicographers. Once they have done that difficult and
arduous legwork they alphabetize and categorize and type and submit to
an editor (or editors) their work. After the editor(s) goes over it
with a fine tooth comb he either asks for corrections or approves said
Then the book is revised and the proofs are corrected quite carefully.
Then the manuscript is sent off to the printer.
And then you go to the bookstore (or to some online seller) and you buy it.
