TitleA New English – Russian Learner’s Dictionary: From Reception to Production
AbstractTraditional bilingual dictionaries are now being replaced in Russia by dictionaries of a new generation, that is, specifically user oriented learner’s dictionaries. The present paper is centered on some basic principles elaborated and used by the authors in compiling an English – Russian learner’s dictionary. Those principes are conditioned by the practical needs of Russian learners of English. The dictionary is aimed at providing guidance on both speech reception and speech production, and its purpose then is not only to show through illustrations how words live in modern English but also to give prescriptions how to use them effectively in one’s own speech. The principles, outlined in the paper, serve this very purpose.
