Den Gegenstand des Handbuches bildet die Lexikographie und die Wörterbuchforschung, und letztere präsentiert sich in den drei Teilbänden erstmals in ihren verschiedenen Ausprägungen mit einem großen Reichtum an Details, doch zugleich in einer zusammenhängenden und umfassenden Weise: 248 Autoren haben in den Sprachen Deutsch, Englisch und Französisch 349 Artikel geschrieben, welche auf 38 Kapitel verteilt sind. Die Zielsetzung des Handbuches, die sich aus der Lage der Lexikographie und dem Forschungsstand der örterbuchforschung ergibt, ist es die Lexikographie aller Sprachkreise der Erde zu registrieren sowie die der größeren Sprachen, und hier besonders die der europäischen und die ihrer Varietäten, detailliert darzustellen, den Status und die Funktion von lexikographischen Nachschlagewerken, insonderheit die von Sprachwörterbüchern in ihren unterschiedlichen Typen innerhalb der Kultursysteme von Gesellschaften zu beschreiben, die Geschichte der Lexikographie an Beispielen größerer Kulturen zu entwerfen, auf der Grundlage der Kenntnis der gesellschaftlichen Funktionen von Wörterbüchern und der Buchgeschichte und unter Berücksichtigung von Theorien über den Aufbau des Lexikons und seine Stellung im Sprachganzen Ausschnitte zu einer Allgemeinen Theorie der Lexikographie zu liefern, die Methodik der Lexikographie für alle Phasen des lexikographischen Prozesses, von der äußeren Arbeitsorganisation der Wörterbuchkanzleien bis hin zu methodischen Einzelverfahren unter Berücksichtigung des Computereinsatzes darzustellen und weiterzuentwickeln, auf die Unterschiede zwischen den realistischen Möglichkeiten und der gegebenen Realität der lexikographischen Praxis hinzuweisen und aus der Kenntnis von lexikographischen Defiziten Möglichkeiten für qualitative Verbesserungen und aussichtsreiche Perspektiven für neue lexikographische Projekte und metalexikographische Forschungen aufzuzeigen, die primäre und sekundäre Literatur möglichst breit und zuverlässig zu dokumentieren und insgesamt nachhaltig dazu beizutragen, daß die moderne wissenschaftliche Lexikographie zu einer von Wissenschaftlern lehrbaren und von Studenten lernbaren praxisorientierten Disziplin entwickelt wird.
