Oxford dictionary of English. University Press. Summers, D. Longman dictionary of contemporary English 4th ed. Trappes-Lomax, H. For example, the meal box explains the usages of dinner, lunch, supper, and tea p. The highly useful Which Word boxes deal with easily confusable words, e.
One informed this author of differences that exist in British and American usages of course, program, and module p.
The last type of box is new to OALD-7 and is by far the most common of all box types used — Synonyms. In addition to synonyms such as shade, tone, hue, tint, and tinge, these boxes may also include patterns and collocations. The synonym boxes will be a welcome addition for learners such as those in Korea who need to hone their vocabulary for TOEIC and similar tests.
For test preparation, more of the grammar usage boxes would be welcomed. The addition of boxes focusing on spoken phrases, such as those found in LDOCE-4 see Shaffer, , would also have much to offer to the EFL student, as they have limited access to authentic speech.
It is understood that it would be difficult to include all of these suggestions due to space considerations. An attractive addition that does not take up space is color, and OALD-7 makes the change from all black to color for important headwords and boxed text, a change that the other major ALDs had already made in their most recent editions. Though the color does make the text stand out more than before, the selected darker blue does so somewhat less than the brighter blues and red appearing in other ALDs.
The illustrations in OALD-7 are not only more abundant but more aesthetically pleasing, in many cases employing photographed material rather than drawings. Following the nearly 1, pages of lexical entries in OALD-7 are more than a hundred additional pages of useful information — colored sections of maps and featured topics, and a reference section. It consists of subsections on grammar including, conditionals, collocations, and idioms , study pages writing emails, telephoning, electronic messaging , and other references first names and geographical names, sayings and proverbs, and OALD-7s defining vocabulary of 3, words.
Collecting all this information together in the back of the dictionary makes more sense and is more convenient than randomly interspersing sections of it through the dictionary, as done in OALD-6, especially since the pages of content have doubled. They rank physical characteristics very high in importance in evaluating and selecting a dictionary Kent, Therefore, not only the contents but also the presentation of a dictionary must be taken into consideration.

In size, OALD-7 has grown to 5. It is thus unlikely that a learner will carry it to school and back electronic dictionaries have already replaced print dictionaries in the classroom in Korea , but OALD-7 is quite desirable as a desk reference. The paper quality is high, but character size and spacing between characters and lines have been slightly reduced from that of OALD-6, making the text slightly more difficult to read.
It is a dictionary that the user will find satisfying use after use. In addition to semantics and conceptual metaphor, his academic interests lie in TEFL methodology, teacher training, and Korean lexical borrowing from English. Email: disin chosun. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

CD , schema: Arranging according to frequency of use also allows unrelated meanings to be interspersed among related ones. OALD6 is truly a joy to use. This is partially due to differing methods of characterizing headwords and treatments of polysemy. For test preparation, more of the grammar usage boxes would be welcomed. It has to be the most user-friendly, information-intensive dictionary available for the upper-intermediate to advanced English learner.
