Dictionary use

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


    Dictionaries are tools which people use to access information about words. Their purpose is to provide 'user-adapted access to data' (Leroyer, 2009, p. 113), so they must contain information that is relevant to users, and they must also have an access system to enable that information to be retrieved.
