Lexique Pove-Français/Français-Pove, Mickala Manfoumbi: A second review [Lexique Pove-Français/Français-Pove, Mickala Manfoumbi: Seconde note de lecture]
This article is a follow-up to a review of the Lexique Pove-Français/Français-Pove (Mickala Manfoumbi 2004) by Mavoungou (2005). Apart from reservations on purely lexicographical issues, the work of Mickala Manfoumbi gives rise to interesting questions which exceed the limited field of metalexicography. These relate to matters such as the context of publication, the format structure, as well as the positioning of the publication within the strategic planning of Gabonese lexicography. These questions lead to the placing of the Pove lexicon within the framework of Gabonese linguistics as well as the emerging Gabonese lexicography. This article aims at supplementing the review by Mavoungou (2005) concerning these matters.
