Todays Readers are Tomorrows Leaders
The last thing a dictionary needs to be is intimidating. Yet many adult dictionaries are just that due to complicated structures and word meanings. This dictionary, from the editors of The World Book Encyclopedia, combines all the features of a traditional dictionary with the readability of World Book. The result is an ideal dictionary that can be used for a lifetime.
Words likely to be used by students are defined in a simple manner for better comprehension. The Dictionary also presents informative illustrative sentences that help clarify word meanings.
But this is by no means an abridged reference work. It features more than 225,000 entries, 3000 illustrations, notes on how to use prefixes, suffixes, capitalization and punctuation, pronunciation guides, and more. It's the final word in state-of-the-art dictionaries.
