Here is a brand-new title specifically designed to meet the needs of today's students. With over 144,000 words, phrases and definitions, it offers comprehensive coverage of current English. Throughout the dictionary there are notes giving advice on the use of good English, and highlighting the differences between commonly confused words such as affect and effect, as well as thousands of example phrases. The dictionary has been market-tested with both teachers and students. Of relevance is the centre supplement, which provides practical information, such as how to research and take notes, how to write essays and summaries, advice on referencing, and preparing CVs and job applications. There is an Online Resource Centre – accessed via weblinks given in the book – which gives additional information and study skills support.
