There has been growth in the assortment of Faroese dictionaries within the last decades. Traditionally, Faroese dictionaries are pre-scriptive, but in modern dictionaries a more descriptive attitude is being expressed, resulting in a relatively high amount of import words. This tendency is more explicit in foreign-Faroese dictionar-ies than in Faroese-foreign dictionaries.
