Description

As well as explaining the meaning of words precisely, this study dictionary gives pronunciation in the International Phonetic Alphabet for words that can cause difficulty, and etymologies (word histories) that provide concise and interesting information on the origin of words. A clear layout has been used, making it easy to find the information needed. Usage panels throughout the book are designed to give practical help with aspects of spelling and grammar that people worry about, such as words that are often confused (for example hoard and horde) or words that should be used in a particular way (eg when to use between and when to use among). Other key features include: over 170,000 references and definitions; usage panels that are designed to give practical help with aspects of spelling and grammar; and a study supplement which features a main section on essay writing, essential terms and concepts explained for subjects such as ICT, geography and mathematics, and Website addresses to encourage home study.show more
