This contribution discusses the importance of Weijnen’s lexicographical work. He was an lexicographical autodidact, but his work was exemplary and outstanding. This is illustrated by reviewing three impressive projects that he conceived and completed. The three projects are: (1) a monolingual pocket dictionary of the Dutch language which was the leading educational book for decennia, (2) two large-scale scientific dialect dictionaries based on an ideological ordering, and (3) an impressive etymological dictionary of Dutch dialect words.
