Title: Syntagmatik im zweisprachigen Wörterbuch
Subtitle: [Syntagmatics in the Bilingual Dictionary]
Written By: Benedikt A Model
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110232226-1
Series Title: Lexicographica. Series Maior / Supplementbände zum Internationalen Jahrbuch für Lexikographie 137
Description:

Bilingual dictionaries are an important aid in foreign language acquisition
and in interlingual communication. However, when speaking and writing one
needs to be able to formulate whole sentences instead of using single
words. The term syntagmatics encompasses all that surrounds a word in a
sentence. The monograph Syntagmatics in the Bilingual Dictionary explores
what one needs to know about a word to use it correctly in a sentence and
how a dictionary should be structured to convey this information.
