A good example of lexicology at work, and one everyone is familiar with, is the dictionary or thesaurus. As there are many different types of dictionaries, there are many different types of lexicologists. There are difficulties in working out what simple words such as 'the' mean, and what complicated words mean. Also which words to keep in and which not to include.
