Definitions are given in a clear, simple style, avoiding technical language, and are easier to understand than ever before, plus there are hundreds of notes on spelling and grammar to help you get it right. A brand-new "Better English" section at the center of the book gives guidance on the use of good English, with sections on spelling, punctuation, word classes, and word formation. In addition, the new layout featuring bold, colored headwords makes the dictionary easier to navigate than ever.

All of these features are packed into a durable, and portable format, making the it suitable for use at school, but also handy for home and the office.
