The Nijmegen Arabic/Dutch Dictionary Project

1.14 Interesting Conclusions and Observations

 

Some interesting conclusions and observations can be made after completing the dictionaries, and after writing such an extensive report on how the project was carried out etc.

My conclusions concern:

bullet

coverage of the Arabic vocabulary in a dictionary containing 24.000 Arabic entries

bullet

comparison between existing dictionaries

bullet

descriptions as a means to bridge the gap of lacking equivalents

bullet

lexical gaps in Arabic and/or in Dutch

bullet

disappointingly few useful practical indications in a book devoted to the compilation of Arabic dictionaries for foreigners
