In the dictionary of the Kola Saami traditional trades and husbandry lexis ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] 2014) the vocabulary is arranged in six topics: Reindeer Husbandry, Fishing, Hunting, Foraging, Sheep Husbandry, and Zootomy and Zoophysics.
The chapters are each entitled with a dictionary word, ordered alphabetically from "Adventurous" to "Zootomy," and each ingeniously (for the most part) tied to the chapter's content, so that both the overt orderliness and the latent playfulness of Johnson's Dictionary are evoked throughout.
