This project proposes a research in Bilingual Pedagogical Lexicography-Portuguese-English, subject inserted in the field of Applied Linguistics and social sciences. The studies to be carried out are part of the project for the compilation of the Portuguese-English dictionary of verbs, proposed by Zacarias, 2011, who is also the professor in charge of this research. The referred dictionary is based on a scientific study of the contrast of Portuguese-English languages and on the needs of Brazilian learners of English as a foreign language.

Our study will evaluate the entries of each of the verbs in four Portuguese-English learner's dictionaries. At the end of this work, we will present the ten verbs entries, which will be the part of the verb dictionary. Keywords: Lexicography; Dictionary; Contrastive.
