TitleProviding lexicographic support for SL vocabulary acquisition: What kind, under what conditions, for whom, and why?
AbstractAlthough a number of the latest dictionaries for the SL market have been praised for their innovative design features, learners and users do, and lexicographers and metalexicographers should, concern themselves with the functional quality (FQ) of the dictionary products they provide for the market. The FQ of dictionaries and its scientific assessment forms the topic of this paper. FQ is defined in Section 1, and current approaches to assessing FQ in the field of lexicography are discussed in Section 2. Section 3 provides an outline and demonstration of a methodology which makes theoretically-driven empirical assessment of the FQ of dictionaries possible.
