In recent years we have witnessed a surge of interest in dictionary research in 2nd language contexts. Susan Knight’s research in 1994 (Dept of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Central Michigan University), demonstrates that those who used a dictionary as well as guessed through context not only learned more words immediately after reading but also remembered more after two weeks.


There is also a problem with learning words but not knowing how to pronounce the words. Igbo language is a tonal language, which means that the meaning of some Igbo words change with the way they are said.
