An Oxford Reference Book
THE ADVANCED LEARNER'S DICTIONARY OF CURRENT ENGLISH
A. S. HORNBY, E. V. GATENBY and H. WAKEFIELD
This is a standard work of reference for learners of English as a foreign or second language in all parts of the world. It is also widely used in schools by backward readers whose vocabulary problems are often similar to the problems of those who are trying to master English as a foreign language. By giving phonetic transcriptions and by giving structural examples this dictionary provides a key to both spoken and written usage. The emphasis on verb and preposition usage and the classification of countable and uncountable nouns add to its usefulness. There are about 20,000 entries and about 1,000 illustrations which make definitions clearer.
