It has more than 12,000 usage labels, notes, and paragraphs. The English definitions are written with 3,000 core vocabulary words. The definitions are translated into Korean as well. It has more than 150,000 example sentences. The Core Dictionary features Korean translations of definitions from Merriam-Webster's Advanced Learner's Dictionary (designed to help students learn spoken and written English as it is actually used.) A large number of the examples in this dictionary do not simply illustrate usage, they also explain it and expand upon it in other ways. Many examples include synonymous words or phrases shown within brackets, thus allowing the reader either to learn a new word or to have the connection between the meanings of words reinforced. Examples often include glosses, so that phrases and compound terms whose meanings are not obvious can be explained clearly and simply. Very frequently this dictionary explains the meaning of entire phrases and sentences by restating them with simpler words. Many examples also show how the same word can be used in slightly different ways-or how related words can be used in different ways-to say the same thing.
