TitleAre dictionaries of lexical blends efficient Learners’ dictionaries?
AbstractThe scope of this paper concerns both learners’ lexicography and lexical blending. It will focus on the potential utilization of dictionaries of fanciful lexical blends as learning tools, able to ensure an educational role in the learning of the lexicon. In order to deal with this issue, the phenomenon of blending in regard to a learning perspective will be briefly introduced. This will allow an exploration of the ways of using dictionaries of blends in a didactic manner, and at the same time evaluate the limitation of this method.
