As a somewhat experienced language learner I personally am not afraid of falling into a 1<>1 trap, but new learners may not realize that they in fact need to refine their initial one or two word meaning. But that wasn't my real point. I use very detailed definitions on my Anki cards, although as I have mentioned, I just try to hook a word or three initially, after which in subsequent review when I know that initial meaning well enough, I try to add further meaning from that longer definition. But I want that process of iteration and refinement to my English meaning of a L2 word to end as fast as possible, and for further refinements to be in L2 in my mind. With German for example, I want to drive on a road that only has German signs, insofar as possible, instead of prolonging my drive on a bilingual road. This is an issue deserving of its own thread perhaps, and not really central to the question of Anki vs GL vs Iversen Wordlists.
