After designating the function of this element of the entry we suggest the review ofits development from the earliest dictionaries to the latest ones. On the basis of existing unilingual phraseologicaldictionaries of the English and Russian languages we draw the conclusion about the necessity of elaboratingappropriate methodology of selecting contexts and their arranging in the entry. Research into illustrativeexamples structure of four online idiom dictionaries evidences that online phraseography has not worked out itsmethodology of selecting, preparing and representing illustrative material used in resources of computer andcorpora linguistics.
