dalehilman, Will you please don't make a reference or point out in any such way that I am ignorant? If you want to know the truth, I am in a Linguistics class but my professor has not gone over this and doesn't use a PowerPoint slides or a textbook. All he has done is talk about the history of linguistics (I must say that it is totally boring). Since, you have mentioned a lexicon being a dictionary then which one am I suppose to use? I mean there are so many different types of dictionaries such as Bilingual Dictionary, Monolingual Dictionary, Etymological Dictionary, Crossword Dictionary, Rhyming Dictionary, Mini Dictionary, Pocket Dictionary, Thesaurus, and Glossary. The kinds of dictionaries are as follows: Accounting Dictionary, Business Studies Dictionary, Economics Dictionary, Art Dictionary, Math Dictionary, History Dictionary, Psychology Dictionary, Biographical Dictionary, Dream Dictionary, ESL Dictionary, High Tech Dictionary, Idiom Dictionary, Encyclopedia Dictionary, Picture Dictionary, Medical Dictionary, Music Dictionary, and Merriam Webster Dictionary. How am I supposed to know which dictionary to use when there are so many different types and kinds of dictionaries?
I think that when you just say write a lexicon for the following words that is way too broad or general. How come? Well, how am I suppose to know what the instructor is looking for? For example, I searched online for the word "sand goanna" which form of the word am I suppose to use such as pragmatic or syntactic? What if there is a noun, verb, and adjective for the word am I suppose to write all those down? Should I write the word down from a General Dictionary or use the translations, meanings, definitions in the Linguistics Dictionary? The site that you mentioned about how to write rules doesn't come up. I wouldn't say that my knowledge of the language would far surpass yours if I am in an introduction course of linguistics. If you can answer my questions on here, then please do so.
