The Microstructure of Isichazamazwi SesiNdebele (ISN)
MetadataShow full item record
This article gives an analysis of the microstructure of Isichazamazwi SesiNdebele, henceforth the ISN. The microstructure is analysed at two levels; the level of providing information and the level of making that information accessible to users. This analysis is done within the framework of dictionary user-friendliness on one hand and principles of dictionary-making on the other. The findings of two outreach exercises carried out to get users` perspectives on the dictionary and their competence in using the dictionary are used to make conclusions with regards to user-friendliness of the ISN microstructure.
