Defining in a Leamer's Dictionary. Because a leamer's dictionary (in this case Basiswoordeboek vir Afrikaans) is directed at the foreign language user it stands to reason that the definitions therein will differ to a great extent from those used in a standard descriptionptive dictionary (for this article the Nasionale Woordeboek). This article discusses the differences in defining between these two types of dictionaries. The dissimilarity in the use of these dictionaries results in the main differences in defining: where the standard descriptionptive dictionary is used mainly for decoding, the learner's dictionary is used for decoding as well as encoding of text. Therefore the definiens should be as unambiguous and user-friendly as possible. The ways in which this could be achieved are descriptionbed, such as the use of full sentences, basic vocabulary, etc.
