This study challenges the traditional approach of focusing on English as a foreign language learning in international business settings.
The primary objective in such settings is to successfully create a linguistically correct document.
Rather than relying on accumulated incomplete individual language knowledge, an alternative approach is to "solve a written language problem" by employing online tools to search for certain unknown technical terms.
The author of this study advocates that the use of bilingual text search engines as a more viable problem-solving tool than traditional online dictionaries.
Therefore, he examines how well participants are able to select correct verb-object expression using either an online dictionary or a bilingual text search engine.
