"Who has eaten of the pot knows the taste of the broth" In praise of monolingual English dictionaries

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review

Abstract

This article traces the history of the main English dictionaries and points out the advantages for learners of the language of using a modern monolingual dictionary. Drawing on authentic student texts, it identifies two common errors, the confusion of "find/find out" and the use of "have the possibility to" and shows that a corpus-based dictionary can help distinguish between the former and how a collocation dictionary can be an aid to choosing appropriate verb+noun combination in the latter.
