I am currently working on an independent study in lexicography, and have
benefitted much from the previous posts. I also do not want to step into
the middle of Peter v. Karl. But in a related thread, I know there are
other lexica than BDB, but wondered if Karl would tell us about the lexicon
he uses and why it is philosophically superior. After all, I have problems
with some of BDB, but have always regarded it as my default.
Also relatedly, I'm wondering why JM call dibber a Denominative Piel, which
is "not a grammatical, but lexical category." And behind it lies "a
related, and assuredly more primitive, noun: dibber to speak (vs. davar)".
Trevor, can you shed any light on why davar is "assuredly more primitive?"
All other guidance on how to correctly do lexicography is welcome and
