The Role of Dictionaries in Language Learning.
White, Philip A.
Dialog on Language Instruction, v12 n1&2 p7-16 1997
Examines assumptions about dictionaries, especially the bilingual dictionary, and suggests ways of integrating the monolingual dictionary into the second-language instructional process. Findings indicate that the monolingual dictionary can coexist with bilingual dictionaries within a foreign-language course if the latter are appropriately used as a transition aid to the former.
