El tratamiento de las fórmulas en el diccionario de la Academia
We will examine the treatment that different editions of the Royal Spanish Academy dictionary give to one type of phraseological units: the formulae. First, we will review some research papers (phraseological and lexicographic) which, within the ambit of Hispanic linguistics, are interested in these phraseological units. Secondly, we will use the formulae information (features, functions and nomenclature) presented by the previous works to clarify the data that the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy provides regarding these phraseological units. For this purpose, we will focus on the names that formulae receive in the dictionary as well as the information related to the behaviour of these phraseological units in the discourse. The results show that the dictionary includes the formulae from their origin and defines them from the perspective of their function in the discourse.
