Example text

Nouns and verbs are major word classes in the English language. They play an especially important role in the learning of English. Function words like prepositions and articles, though limited in number, also present constant problems to learners of English. After teaching English in Japan for over two decades, Hornby knew better than any native scholars of English how non-native learners of English differed from native learners in reference needs and what their reference needs were. It is not at all surprising that Hornby concentrated on nouns and verbs and gave unusual attention to collocations of these content words with function words like prepositions and articles.

Therefore, the nest alphabetic arrangement of entry words should always be favored over the straight alphabetic method, and derivatives and compounds should be treated in the nest under the headword.

Such factors as presentation, direction, method and media are all subsumed under “mode”.  Alphabetical presentation is the most common method of setting up macrostructure and organizing information in both dictionary types. Morphemic arrangement would be of interest mainly to linguists. Therefore, it may be used in monolingual dictionaries only occasionally, and under limited special circumstances, but it would be extremely unusual in bilingual dictionaries. Semantic arrangement is chiefly employed in thesauruses, which are mostly written monolingually.
