The syntax remains the same: erlang

     词典:新生()  %%  erlang syntax

     dict:new()  %%  erlang syntax

Note that erlang terms do not have the same meaning as similar English 
terms.  The erlang term "list" does not have the same meaning as the 
English term "list".  You might call them faux amis.

Best
