TitleParallel Development of Monolingual and Bilingual Dictionaries for Learners of English
AbstractDictionary makers have traditionally treated the compilation of monolingual and bilingual dictionaries as quite distinct activities. However, there is a lot of overlap in the work required for the two genres, especially when the target user group is similar. This paper discusses the parallel development of monolingual and bilingual diction-ries, and suggests that as well as labour-saving advantages each genre can provide useful insights which may be incorporated into the other. It suggests also that consideration of cross-linguistic data may in some cases modify the assumption of corpus frequency as the overriding factor in dictionary inclusion policy.
