TitleThe different functions of illustrative examples in Learner’s Bilingual Dictionaries. Compiling a dictionary around illustrative examples: The Experience of the Larousse School French-English, English-French Dictionary
AbstractThis paper deals with specific functions illustrative examples perform in the Larousse School French-English English French Dictionary, a learner's dictionary intended for beginners published in 2002. Playing a central part in the lexicographical concept behind this dictionary, illustrative examples are used systematically in a pedagogical approach to show the translation of the headword in context and to help users learn the language through context and association. They also serve to distinguish between the different senses of a word, thereby allowing for a simple structure of entries adapted to the needs of young learners. Finally, they greatly contribute to making the dictionary user-friendly and provide a valuable initiation in the use of bilingual dictionaries.
