Abstract

This paper will deal with the cross-cultural dimension of bilingual dictionaries. In order to illustrate the culture-specific elements of lexicon, we will focus on equivalence and will try to outline a typology of lexical gaps. Taking the anisomorphism of languages as a starting point, we will develop the concept of cultural load.
