TitleIdioms in a Semantic Network: Towards a New Dictionary-Type
AbstractIn this paper a conception of a new dictionary of idioms is put forward. The proposed model is based on the thesaural principle and intends to reflect the language relevant "naive" picture of the world. To achieve this aim a nonconventional lexicographic approach is necessary, main priorities of which are psychologically acceptable solutions, and not the logical elegance of classification. An idiomthesaurus of this kind, apart from its theoretical relevance as an instrument of description of the mental lexicon, can be used for purposes of foreign language acquisition and translation.
