This dictionary is designed to support the language and literacy needs of children aged 8+. Written in a clear, straightforward style, it places words within a context familiar to the student. It extends and reinforces key dictionary skills by showing parts of speech (noun, verb, etc), and other forms of a word (plural, adjective, etc). Numbered definitions show multiple uses. Pronunciation help is given for difficult or easily confusable words. Synonyms and antonyms are given to build vocabulary.
The clear layout, highlighted headwords and colour guidewords plus the A-Z on every page ensure that the dictionary is an easy-to-use reference tool. Clearly labelled colour illustrations and photographs add extra meaning and information. Also included is a user's guide to the dictionary and useful word lists.
