    Re: to differ the meaning of "lexicon" and "dictionary"

    LDOCE: dictionary - a book that gives a list of words in alphabetical order and explains their meanings in the same language, or another language
    lexicon technical all the words and phrases used in a language or that a particular person knows

    You have to consult a dictionary for a word in the lexicon of, say, Hebrew or Harry Potter.

    Hey, we both are from China! By now we should be crying, shouldn't we? But I'm afraid I'm in no better position to answer your question than you are yourself, because I'm a newbie too! All I can suggest is post any of your questions about this forum in Support Area. You'll find it at the bottom of the entrance page to this forum. Good luck!

    Congrats, dear comrade! I'm sure you'll have many good times with just as many ESL teachers here! And the "knowledge" of them all!

    Yeah, you're right indeed. I'm sure we would burst into tears if we met in Europe or somewhere else abroad.
    Glad to meet you, and good luck to you all the same.

    I'm afraid I may be guilty of misleading you by another post, in which I addressed another member as 'comrade'. In that context (a discussion of English's lack of a polite form of address for an equal) it was a joke . It's not normal to address someone as 'comrade'.
