This book is intended as a contribution to the current debate on the coding of grammar in learners' dictionaries. It offers a critical discussion of the grammatical coding systems in five monolingual EFL dictionaries: the ›Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary of Current English‹ (OALD, 3rd revised ed. 1980), the ›Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English‹ (LDOCE, 1978), the two volumes of the ›Oxford Dictionary of Current Idiomatic English‹ (ODCIE 1, 1975 and ODCIE 2, 1983), and the ›Longman Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs‹ (LDOPV, 1983). This is followed by an alternative proposal which, the authors feel, overcomes some of the shortcomings of the other coding systems in being consistent, self-explanatory and reasonably easy to use.
