Encarta Student Dictionary (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


English, and the way we use it to communicate, is changing faster now than at any time in our history. The growth of the Internet, e-mail, and text messaging means that the boundaries between the written and spoken language are becoming ever more blurred. The explosion of vocabulary in areas like science, technology, e-commerce, and the media confronts us with new specialist terms every day. The need for guidance on using the language correctly, and keeping up with its changes, has never been greater. The Encarta Student Dictionary is the result of a detailed survey of professors, teachers, and students of English and the most common language problems they encounter.

Innovative features designed to improve language skills and awareness include: - Spelling: 1,000 common misspellings, cross-referred to their correct form - Spellchecks: warnings about commonly confused spellings ignored by spellcheckers - Usage Notes: answers to the most frequent student queries on spelling and grammar - Quick Facts: short digests of key concepts in the arts and science - Literary Links: notes on major works of literature - Internet Guide on navigating and researching on the Internet In addititon to this the Encarta Student Dictionary provides an easy-to-use layout, 30 tables of key facts and dates, and over 8,000 names of people and places. A unique 'Quick Definition' system, with brief definitions in bold, enables the user to pick out the appropriate sense at speed. The Encarta Student Dictionary is designed to meet the everyday requirements of today's students. Language is a powerful tool. Read the new manual."
