In den seit 1984 erschienenen knapp 150 Bänden spiegeln sich anschaulich die Schwerpunkte und Entwicklungstendenzen der einschlägigen Forschung.

The research has provided insights into the area of look-up behaviour, in particular, look-up strategies. A coding scheme of 51 executive, cognitive and metacognitive operations has been derived from the think-aloud data. On the basis of the codes, seven types of strategies were identified: Ignoring, Assuming, Minimizing, Checking, Paraphrasing, Stretching, and Maximizing. The results also indicated that the look-up strategies preferred one part (either L1 translation equivalents or L2 definitions) rather than both parts (L1 translation equivalents and L2 definitions) of the bilingualised entries. Four other factors i.e. language preference, language proficiency, target words and L2 definitions could also influence the use of the bilingualised entries in various degrees. Learners were shown to have common as well as different patterns of strategy use. Most learners attempted a variety of strategies while one learner repeatedly utilized one type of strategy. The frequency of strategy use for individual learners usually fluctuated when different types of strategies were used. Although a wide variety of strategies were used, not every strategy was used frequently. The most frequently used strategy was maximizing, which was used in 112 look-ups out of a total of 264. It appears that the learners repeatedly used strategies they are familiar with or they think are effective, and do not spontaneously try other strategies that they may know and that may be effective.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Linguistik, Note: 1,7, Universitat Bayreuth, Veranstaltung: Proseminar Lexicography, 4 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Learner's Dictionaries are only about half a century old. Back in the 1930's a need for better language teaching tools developed. A.S. Hornby worked out the first major general-purpose dictionary of this kind in 1942, which was first called the Idiomatic and Syntactic Dictionary of English, later on in 1948 A Learner's Dictionary of Current English and was at last published in 1952 as The Advanced Learner's Dictionary of Current English. The the was replaced from the third edition on by Oxford and the dictionary is now known as the OALD. In 1978 Longman developed a more innovative Learner's Dictionary: the Dictionary of Contemporary English (LDOCE). In contrast to the OALD the LDOCE only used a defining vocabulary of 2000 words that were listed at its back. Furthermore it explained more modern words for example current idioms, slang and colloquialisms. The only disadvantage of this dictionary was the "over-complex system of grammatical codes" (see Robert Allen 1996, p.41), which was improved in the second edition from 1987 and the third edition, published in 1995."
