Lexikoaren bilketaren baldintza zenbait

Abstract : Dialectologists -in monographic works, but also in atlas surveys as is the case currently for the linguistic atlas of the Basque Country- must work in situ, near speakers, so that the material obtained may be used for the construction of a local dictionary of language and culture. Here, the emphasis is not on the minimal information which is essential for an atlas -it can be assumed that the problem is resolved- but on a preoccupation for semantic precision and even, therefore, on the conditions under which lexical forms are obtained: thus, the stereotype provided ad hoc is often much more profitable when working with the speaker than only a prototype. The ethnographic way is assessed as a privileged form of obtaining access to the lexis of a community. Phraseology (metaphors, comparisons, proverbs, etc.) is considered as a good indicator of lexical activity. The samples taken are not limited to words but are extremely varied texts and discourses, ranging from accounts of experiences to technical instructions including several versions of mythical narratives (sometimes unknown) which take dialectology to the threshold of anthropology.
