Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

E-mail this message to a friend

I am doing research for my thesis on monolingual advanced learners'
dictionaries in English and would be grateful for suggestions from
colleagues of the titles of monolingual advanced learners' dictionaries
in other languages intended for advanced non-native speaking
learners of those languages.

The topic of the thesis is the coverage given by English learners'
dictionaries to English idioms, and whether such coverage is relevant
to learners of English as an L2 in Australia.

I am also including a brief section on learners' dictionaries in other
languages, e.g. German dictionaries written entirely in German and
designed for people who want to learn German as a second or foreign
language. This is where I would value suggestions by LINGUIST List

I do not have many other examples of learners' dictionaries in
languages other than English. I have looked online but have only found
the "Dictionnaire du français – reférénce, apprentissage” (1999) (Le
Robert and CLE International). I'm hoping that LINGUIST List
subscribers might give me some ideas and titles.

Thank you very much,
Julia Miller
