Word by word - A walk through the dictionary

The supplement Word by word takes the reader on a guided tour through the dictionary, starting from single entry words and examining them in their lexical and communicative context. It aims to foster a broader and more intimate relationship between dictionary and user, moving beyond the targeted search for the translation of a specific word. The dictionary thus becomes an indispensable tool for expanding one s knowledge of the lexicon and basic language skills. The work is divided into four sections, including several exercises: using the dictionary to look up words, to understand meanings, to speak and write correctly, and to discover word origins, to avoid mistakes, to overcome doubts, and to get to know the language.
