The first truly corpus-based dictionary of American English at the advanced level is now available as a standˇValone CD-ROM. It provides the complete contents of the dictionary plus pictures, pronunciation of all headwords, animations to teach grammar points, and practice TOEIC®(Test Of English for International Communication [Educational Testing Service]) AND TOEFL® (Test Of English as a Foreign Language [Educational Testing Service]) test.
A quick look is all it takes with the signpost system which shows you the meaning you want much more quickly. The 3,000 most frequent words in American speech and writing are also clearly marked so you know which words are more important to know than others.
You'll find simply the best spoken English coverage here, shown as it is really used. 2,000 Americans from across the USA were recorded in their day-to-day activity. Their conversations form the basis of the revolutionary Longman Spoken American Corpus. Using this corpus, as well as the Longman Written American Corpus, to create the definitions and the 66,000 examples which illustrate the words reveal just how the language is really used.
This dictionary uses clear definitions using only 2,000 words which learners at this level already know, means that there's no need to look up other words within definitions.
Grammatical patterns are highlighted for the learner to learn and usage notes throughout show clearly correct word choice. Phrasal verbs, such as "latch onto", are explained in full.
This dictionary opens up the world of English. 84,000 words and phrases, including newer words such as dot.com, HOV lane, HTML and e.coli, keep you up to date with the latest language. 4,000 encyclopedic entries such as Rosa Parks, Benjamin Franklin, and Mount Rushmore give you the cultural information you need for a full understanding of the language.
