The Collins Essential English Dictionary sets new standards in clarity, accessibility and practical help, with a useful supplement on writing well whether for letters, reports, essays, email correspondence, text messages or speeches. In addition to the usual wide range of entries, this dictionary contains specialist vocabulary from computing, science and technology and many other subjects; all explained in clear, straightforward language. Usage notes are provided to give advice on words that tend to be confused, and on acceptable and unacceptable usage. The text and usage notes are based on the findings in the Bank of English, Collins' unique language database, ensuring that they reflect the way today's language is used. Real examples, also from the Bank of English, demonstrate words in use. The Good Writing Guide supplement, specially commissioned, is full of tips and rules on how to write correct and effective English. It shows how to write letters for job applications, work, complaints, schools and domestic concerns. It also gives advice on writing CVs, email correspondence, text messages and speeches. In addition, there is guidance on spelling, style, punctuation and grammar. The attractive open layout of this dictionary makes it easy to use, as well as a pleasure to read.
