Numbered definitions show multiple uses. Pronunication help is given for difficult or easily confusable words in a clear, easy-to-use way. Synonyms (similar words) and antonyms (opposite words) are given to build vocabulary and word power.The layout, highlighted headwords and colour guidewords plus the A-Z on every page should ensure that the dictionary is an easy-to-use reference tool. Colour illustrations and photographs add extra meaning and information.
