DOI: 10.18355/XL.2016.09.02.73-89

The article deals with the problem of ways to lexicographically describe cultural phenomena, the development of theoretical approach to the issue, namely, principles for selection of information and its introduction into dictionary corpus.  Particular attention is given to such elements of lexicographical description of culture phenomena as the background knowledge of an average language speaker, which should be given in the commentary to a dictionary entry. We suggest taking into account for two principles for lexicographical description of culture phenomena ― the principle of inclusiveness and completeness of description and topic-based principle for classification.
