Capturing Phraseology in an Online Dictionary for Advanced Users of English as a Second Language: A Response to User Needs.
McAlpine, Janice; Myles, Johanne
System, v31 n1 p71-84 Mar 2003
Proposes a new type of English-as-a-Second-Language dictionary--in electronic form--that presents typical phraseology rather than words in isolation. Online, without the constraints of space and linear organization, the dictionary can treat the multiword lexical units and common collocational patterns that cohere around a node word and illustrate them fully with sentence examples.
