Abstract

As a type of dictionary with huge popularity among EFL learners in China, the bilingualized dictionary (BLD) deserves more academic and pedagogical attention than it receives nowadays. This article gives an overview of the BLD within the framework of dictionary research, including dictionary history, dictionary typology, dictionary criticism and dictionary use. It first traces, with a special reference to the Chinese EFL context, the origin and historical development of this type of dictionary, and then proposes several approaches to its classification. The strengths and weaknesses of the BLD are evaluated and its role in language pedagogy discussed, followed by an extensive review of the empirical studies of BLD use. Finally, further areas of BLD research are also suggested. It is hoped that such an overview would kindle more research interest in BLDs which is relevant to language pedagogy, dictionary use instruction and lexicographic practices.


As 'n tipe woordeboek wat enorme gewildheid geniet by EVT-aanleerders in China, verdien die verklarende woordeboek met vertalings ( of BLD) meer akademiese en opvoedkundige aandag as wat dit deesdae ontvang. Hierdie artikel gee 'n oorsig van die BLD binne die raamwerk van woordeboeknavorsing, insluitende die geskiedenis van woordeboeke, woordeboektipologie, woordeboekkritiek en woordeboekgebruik. Dit skets eers, met spesiale verwysing na die Chinese EVT-konteks, die oorsprong en historiese ontwikkeling van hierdie tipe woordeboek, en dan word verskeie benaderings vir die klassifikasie daarvan voorgestel. Die sterk punte en swakhede van die BLD word beoordeel en die rol daarvan in die taalpedagogiek word bespreek, gevolg deur 'n uitvoerige oorsig oor die empiriese studies van die gebruik van die BLD. Ten slotte word verdere gebiede vir BLD-navorsing ook voorgestel. Daar word gehoop dat so 'n oorsig meer belangstelling sal wek in navorsing oor BLD's, wat relevant is vir taalpedagogiek, die aanleer van woordeboekgebruik en leksikografiese praktyk.
