Abstract

The primary aim of the article is to compare the usefulness of paper and electronic versions of OALDCE7 (Wehmeier 2005) for language encoding, decoding and learning. It is explained why, in contrast to Dziemianko's (2010) findings concerning COBUILD6 (Sinclair 2008), but in keeping with her observations (Dziemianko 2011) with regard to LDOCE5 (Mayor 2009), the e-version of OALDCE7 proved to be no better for language reception, production and learning than the dictionary in book form. An attempt is made to pinpoint the micro- and macrostructural design features which make e-COBUILD6 a better learning tool than e-OALDCE7 and e-LDOCE5. Recommendations concerning further research into the significance of the medium (paper vs. electronic) in the process of dictionary use conclude the study. The secondary aim which the paper attempts to achieve is to present the status of replication as a scientific research method and justify its use in lexicography.


Die primêre doel van die artikel is om die bruikbaarheid van papier- en elektroniese weergawes van OALDCE7 (Wehmeier 2005) te vergelyk vir taalenkodering en -dekodering en die aanleer van taal. Daar word verduidelik waarom, in teenstelling met Dziemianko (2010) se bevindinge betreffende COBUILD6 (Sinclair 2008), maar in ooreenstemming met haar waarnemings (Dziemianko 2011) met betrekking tot LDOCE5 (Mayor 2009), die e-weergawe van OALDCE7 geblyk het nie beter te wees vir taalresepsie en -produksie en die aanleer van taal as die woordeboek in boekvorm nie. 'n Poging word aangewend om die mikro- en makrostrukturele ontwerpkenmerke aan te stip wat e-COBUILD6 'n beter onderrighulpmiddel maak as e-OALDCE7 en e-LDOCE5. Aanbevelings betreffende verdere navorsing oor die belangrikheid van die medium (papier vs. elektronies) in die proses van woordeboekgebruik sluit die studie af. Die sekondêre doel wat die artikel probeer bereik, is om die status van replisering as 'n wetenskaplike navorsingsmetode aan te bied en die gebruik daarvan in die leksikografie te regverdig.
