European survey on dictionary use


On May 8th 2017, we have launched a large scale European survey on dictionary use, which will be conducted in 29 countries and in 26 different languages. The survey is led by Iztok Kosem (University of Ljubljana and Trojina Institute), Carolin-Müller Spitzer (Institut für Deutsche Sprache), Robert Lew (Adam Mickiewicz University) and Sascha Wolfer (Institut für Deutsche Sprache) and involves 58 researchers. The survey aims to explore the attitude of language users towards general monolingual dictionaries of their native language. The survey is conducted with the support of the European network for e-lexicography (ENeL).

 We kindly ask you to help us disseminate the information on the survey and the link among your colleagues, students and friends from the countries participating in the survey. Please also note that the survey is targeting not only dictionary users but also those who might not use dictionaries on a regular basis but have an opinion about them.
