In this book, the development of the English dictionary is examined, along with the kinds of dictionary available, the range of information they contain, factors affecting their usage, and public attitudes towards them. As well as an descriptive analysis of word meaning, the author considers whether a thematic, thesaurus-like presentation might be more suited than the traditional alphabetical format to the description of words and their meaning.

"....admirably clear and detailed...All in all, the book is a clear, simple introduction to a big and complex subject and should prove very useful." EFL Gazette
