The most up to date, comprehensive and best value students' dictionary on the market. Created from scratch, by two teams of over 100 lexicographers, working in Britain and America, and using a corpus of over 200 million words collected from contemporary written and spoken sources, the Macmillan English Dictionary gives the most up-to-date information available about the meanings of words and how they are used in today's English. The dictionary has been designed for ease of use. Clear and simple definitions of over 100,000 words and phrases are written using a defining vocabulary of no more than 2500 words. Longer entries are introduced by a menu to help you to find the correct meaning fast. Over 80,000 examples show the defined word in a real context which further strengthens students' understanding. The 7,500 most frequent words in English, which form 90 percent of all the written and spoken language we read and hear are made up from only 7,500 frequent words, are highlighted in red, and treated in more detail, with extra information and examples. The Macmillan English Dictionary helps students with words that are needed for communicating in English, and offers invaluable support for those who want to write and speak accurate and contemporary English.Biografía del autor:
