It contains comprehensive world lists in which meanings and context are differentiated and provides thousands of complementary phrases and constructions. Throughout the dictionary there is a particular emphasis on the basic vocabulary of each language. Created as a learning and revision aid for students of French of all ages and levels, the grammar is an invaluable companion to the dictionary. It offers the user a step-by-step guide to the grammar of the language. Grammar points are accompanied by detailed examples and translations. Problem areas are identified, and the user's attention is drawn to individual instances where language differences should be noted. In addition, there are sections on pronunciation, on the use of numbers and on frequently recurring problems of translation and how to solve them. A full index gives the user immediate access to the solution to his or her grammar query.
