Abstract: The article analyses “The Ukrainian Lexicon of the end of 18th – the beginning of 21st century: Index Dictionary” as a multiple sourced and multiple function integrated system which covers the whole lexical and phraseological content basing on fundamental lexicographic sources (both philological and some encyclopedic ones) during the course of two past centuries. The index dictionary contains a list of words that are included in most authoritative and commonly used lexicographic sources, which names are given in abbreviations. The article outlines the features of formation of a dictionary entry, order of presentation and interpretation of homonyms; the question of submitting variants within one or separate vocabulary articles. The Іndex Dictionary as a normative reference source is based on the rules of modern Ukrainian spelling, although it reflects the vocabulary of the Ukrainian language over a long period of time, including a significant amount of Ukrainian vocabulary that is not part of the modern Ukrainian literary language. The basic parameters of system relations between words and their meanings are also outlined. The Іndex Dictionary is an open lexicographical system and a strong base for the development of the modern integrated lexicography.

Keywords: The Index Dictionary, dictionary entry, registry item, homonymy, linguistic variation, integrated lexicography.
