Are Bilingual Dictionaries Useful Linguistic Tools?
Ducroquet, Lucile
Language Learning Journal, n9 p48-51 Mar 1994
Discusses the value of bilingual dictionaries. Using a list of common words drawn from several broad categories, the author attempted to find these words in the Collins-Robert and the Harraps dictionaries. Both dictionaries have very similar results although the Harraps performs slightly better in terms of correct entries. The proportion of words missing in both dictionaries is high. (CK)
