Abstract: Dictionaries and thesauruses have been mined for evidence in five main ways in linguistic studies. Most obviously, they are used for reference, but they have also provided linguists with positions and evidence to argue against (e.g. Todd 2000; Cronan 2003). This chapter will cover the three remaining evidential uses of dictionaries and thesauruses in linguistic research: with reference to attitudes towards language, social anxiety, and linguistic change.
