Abstract

Haquin Spegel’s Glossarium – Sveo-Gothicum (1712) marks an important step in the history of Swedish lexicography. Liberating his dictionary from the Latin-based tradition, the author himself compiled the lemma list. However, the information provided in the entries is not typical of any specific type of dictionary. In this article, the mono-, bi- and multilingual features of the Glossarium are described. This survey leads to the issue of Spegel’s aim with his effort. In addition to producing a Swedish dictionary, he also intended to further the knowledge of Swedish in the international science community and to contribute to an ongoing work on a polyglot dictionary: a lexicon harmonicum.
