Abstract

The aim of the paper is to describe the types of sense-navigation devices in print monolingual English learners’ dictionaries. The paper begins with a section devoted to the various definitions of sense-navigation devices. The following sections are a description of the different types of sense-navigation devices in learners’ dictionaries: signposts in the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English (LDOCE), guide words in the Cambridge International Dictionary
of English (CIDE) and guidewords in the Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (CALD), short cuts in the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Current English (OALD) and menus in the Macmillan English Dictionary for Advanced Learners (MED). The paper ends with the author’s final comments about what type of research ought to be done in the future with respect to sense-navigation devices.
