Gamper, Johann; Knapp, Judith
This paper presents an interdisciplinary research project that aims at developing an electronic vocabulary acquisition system for the German and the Italian language called ELDIT (Elektronisches Lern(er)worterbuch Deutsch Italienisch). The approach for studying and practicing the vocabulary. To ensure maximum effectiveness of the learning process, modern psycholinguistic methods are supplied alongside with new media and technologies including adoptive hypermedia. The system is implemented as an adaptive hyperbook and runs on the World Wide Web. The paper is structured as follows. In the second section, the concept of learners' dictionaries is introduced. In section three, the ELDIT dictionary is described in detail. Section four provides an overview of how we intend to enlarge the basic dictionary to an adaptive vocabulary acquisition system. Section five discusses related work. (Contains 16 references.) (Author/AEF)
