TitlePedagogic Lexicography: Some recent Advances and some Questions about the Future
AbstractPedagogic Lexicography is today a full-fledged stream of metalexicography. The spread of English as the international language for communication among learners many of whom must be considered beginners or intermediate students, has created the need for more user-friendly and learner-oriented dictionaries. Although the market was, until quite recently, occupied by only a few British publishers, American and other publishers are now appearing, and with them, new and varied styles of language-learning dictionaries. After an early emphasis on encoding – in the work of Hornby and Palmer – dictionaries for production are becoming more prevalent, and integration of the mother tongue, a vital factor in foreign language learning, is now becoming an important feature in many learners’ dictionaries, which were hitherto strictly monolingual. It is predicted that advanced level dictionaries will lose some ground in favor of elementary- and intermediate-level dictionaries.
