English for this humanly consumed vegetable is sweet corn. The back of the dictionary, however, offers a real treat for English learners — a page Idiom Finder.

Idioms are notoriously difficult to find in a dictionary, as it is often not apparent which of their words they will be listed under. The Idiom Finder makes multiple entries of idioms with different keywords in alphabetical order. For example, go a long way is listed in the Idiom Finder under go, long, and way. We are informed that it can be found on page , under long. This useful section is followed by others on word families, prefixes and suffixes, regular and irregular verbs, and geographical names, among others.

CALD is similar to its competitors in its color section and language study sections but has a dearth of illustrations throughout the dictionary.

Rundell, M. Macmillan English dictionary for advanced learners.

Macmillan Education. Sinclair, J. Glasgow, Scotland: This feature allows users to learn the most important words in the English. The dictionary also has over illustrations so that users can visualize certain words easily. Worth the Price?

One thing that could be a cause for concern for most people is the price of this software. However, the software is very comprehensive.

As mentioned previously, there are over , words in the dictionary. In addition to that, the dictionary has verb forms. Words with more than one meaning are nicely arranged from most basic or common meaning to least common or most extended meaning.

While some dictionaries opt to list all homographs with or without related meanings under a single headword, CALD has provided separate headwords for homographs with unrelated meanings. Under the first of these headwords, you will also find the semantically related fast adv. This more logical and coherent arrangement is also followed in MED, but unlike MED, each different word class entry begins on a new line with the word in bold font and colored, making it more easily discernible.

What is unique to CALD, though, is its treatment of phrasal verbs. After a headword, or group of homographic headwords, follows a clearly labeled list of defined phrasal verbs incorporating the headword for that entry.

When British and American pronunciations of a headword differ, the British pronunciation precedes the American pronunciation. The same ordering is followed for headword definitions.

If a headword has different meanings in British and American English, such as with vest, the British English meanings precede the American English ones. This is a mild inconvenience to the many learners, such as those in Korea, who are learning American English.

Shaffer used three words discussed in an email newsletter R. This is more likely a result of its smaller store of words and word meanings than of any oversight, but it does indicate a limitation of CALD as an ALD.

There are hundreds of these boxes, based on a 16 million-word learner corpus, highlighting common errors made by learners i. These are often used to explain common verbs and their forms as different tenses, but they cover a wide range of usage topics i. Besides error and usage boxes, the only other items highlighted in boxes are a very few illustrations, leaving many pages with only two continuous columns of Korea TESOL Journal, Volume 6, Number 1, pp. What could have been employed to informatively break this visual monotony are collocation boxes.

CALD has instead opted to include its 25, collocations as example sentences in the entry itself, with the collocating word in bold font. Each headword, each box title, and some box content is in light blue.

Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (4th edition)

Blue is a good choice as it signifies tranquility, confidence, and trust and because it is often considered to be the safest global color.

The shade of blue is quite light, though, and may cause some readers to strain. However, MED uses color to designate frequency of use by having only the 7, most frequently used headwords appear in red.

CALD, however, has chosen not to indicate frequency of use in any way, though this is a point of considerable importance to the average learner. There are no synonym boxes. CALD does sometimes include a single synonym at the end of a definition in bold font, though it is not otherwise marked.

There are no etymological or cultural notes. For example, it would be nice to know that the common noun Lolita p.He was found guilty of terrorist activity. If something transparent clouds, …, it becomes hard to see through. The study guide is full of all sorts of useful general information from vocabulary to grammar to letter writing.

The perfect learner's dictionary for exam success. Front-page stories broke the news of the princess leaving. Lakoff, G. The same ordering is followed for headword definitions.
