Abstract

Dictionaries are written for a specific user group and the content and presentation must therefore be directed/aimed at that specific target group. In the past dictionaries were often compiled without the lexicographers really taking time and researching the intended users and their specific needs. School dictionaries especially were often compiled after very little or no attention being paid to the users and their needs. This article will look at the role of example sentences in dictionary articles, different types of example sentences as well as the criteria for example sentences in bilingual school dictionaries in order to ensure that the final product is natural, typical, informative, intelligible and of use to the user.


Woordeboeke word saamgestel vir 'n spesifieke gebruikersgroep en die inhoud en aanbieding moet daarom op die spesifieke teikengroep gerig wees. In die verlede is woordeboeke dikwels saamgestel sonder dat die leksikograwe werklik tyd daaraan bestee het om navorsing te doen oor die beoogde gebruikers en hulle spesifieke behoeftes. Skoolwoordeboeke is veral saamgestel sonder dat daar veel of enige aandag aan die gebruikers en hulle behoeftes geskenk is. In hierdie artikel sal daar gekyk word na die rol van voorbeeldsinne in woordeboekinskrywings, verskillende tipes voorbeeldsinne sowel as die kriteria vir voorbeeldsinne in tweetalige skoolwoordeboeke om te verseker dat die eindproduk natuurlik, tipies, informatief, verstaanbaar en van nut is vir die gebruiker.
