n Lexikos - User-friendliness of Verb Syntax in Pedagogical Dictionaries of English, Anna Dziemianko : book review




As the basis of her experiment, Dziemianko focuses on a selection of fifteen verbs, some more complex than others (like 'to anoint', 'to yank', and 'to subpoena') and identifies a certain number of variables (analytical versus contextual definitions, use of formal versus functional codes and localization of codes whether they are incorporated in the verb entry or stand out in an extra column) to measure the usability and user-friendliness of modern language learner's dictionaries and gauge language users' strategies.
