With 28,000 entries, this is the authoritative reference for anyone who wants to know what something looks like as well as what it's called. Under general categories such as "man and his social environment," "entertainment, culture and art," and "atom, universe and earth," 384 plates place objects in context. Word buffs will be delighted to find words like "wort," "mopboard," and "leech pocket," while those who are new to English can easily find out what a "xylophone" or a "three-door hatchback" looks like without wading through complicated definitions. The dictionary features a complete table of contents and index for easy reference, and the illustrations are simple, easy to identify, and clearly labeled. The Oxford-Dudens are world-renowned for their excellence; at last there is one that will be a useful general reference for all English-speakers.
