Abstract

The paper deals with word-class categorization from the standpoint of providing word-class tags in dictionaries of Slovene at a general level, applicable regardless of the lexicographic concept. We first demonstrate the individuality of word-class categorization in the theory of grammar, followed by the demonstration of the role of word-class categorization of lexical units within the description of meaning in a dictionary. Providing examples for the predicative, particle, and participial compounds, we demonstrate the development of word-class categorization in the existing Slovene dictionaries and provide guidelines for future dictionaries of Slovene.
