The editor of Oxford’s new dictionary, Dianna Lea, gave an excellent talk that helped to answer this question. Words that you think you know mean something different when they are used in academic or specialist contexts. Dr Lea gave several examples, but one in particular makes the point. We all know what ‘table’ means. It is one of the first words that we learn in English. But if you use a computer to read a huge sample of academic texts, you will find that the most common type of ‘table’ mentioned is the one that contains data. You will also find that in an ordinary dictionary, the word ‘on’ is a good one to use with ‘table’ (he put his books on the table). In the academic dictionary, it is the words ‘above’,’below’ and ‘in’ that need to be learnt: • The table below/above gives figures for output • The numbers in the table refer to …. Like all dictionaries, this one helps with collocations, but specifically academic ones.
