Abstract:

Le parole di una lingua non sono mai isolate ma si usano in combinazione enon con qualunque parola ma solo con alcune. Per parlare bene bisognausare le combinazioni appropriate. In italiano si dice un 'tozzo di pane' perindicare un pezzo di pane, ma si dice anche un 'tozzo di carne'? E unadiscussione 'si solleva'? O 'si solleva un'obiezione'? Una 'discussione siaffronta', ma un 'obiezione'? In italiano non si dice 'fare un appuntamento' conqualcuno ma 'fissare' o 'prendere un appuntamento'. Ogni lingua preferiscecombinazioni diverse e quindi è facile sbagliare quando si parla una linguastraniera. A volte però anche il parlante nativo sbaglia o non è sicuro.

Questo dizionario ricostruisce l'ambiente linguistico di circa 3.000 entrate peraiutare ogni parlante a comunicare in italiano. È destinato al parlante stranieroche ha una conoscenza avanzata della lingua italiana ma anche al parlantenativo che è in cerca della parola giusta. Un dizionario che si distingue dainormali dizionari monolingui e bilingui perché indica sistematicamente lecombinazioni lessicali (circa 90.000), molto spesso spiegandole e/oaccompagnandole con esempi per chiarirne l'uso.

Words are never used in isolation but in combination and not with any wordbut only with certain specific words. To use a language properly theappropriate combinations must be used. In Italian a piece of bread is a 'tozzodi pane', but is that the case for meat? Is a 'tozzo di carne' an appropriatecombination? If you want to make an appointment with somebody you shouldnot say (as in English) 'fare un appuntamento' but 'fissare un appuntamento'.An Italian 'affronta una discussione' (enters or tackles a discussion), but is itpossible for him to say 'affrontare un'obiezione' (to enter or tackle anobjection)? Yes it is, as this dictionary shows.

So every language has its own preferences in word combinations, misleadinga non-native learner into making mistakes influenced by his own language.

This dictionary reconstructs the frame to which 3,000 Italian entries belongand aims to help non-Italian speakers with an advanced linguisticcompetence to find the appropriate word combinations for communicating inItalian. Moreover, this dictionary can also be useful for native speakers whowant to improve their lexical choices in writing and speaking Italian.

The dictionary, contrary to ordinary monolingual and bilingual dictionaries,systematically lists word combinations (almost 90,000), explaining and/orexemplifying them.
