OXFORD COLLOCATIONS DICTIONARY
FOR STUDENTS OF ENGLISH – WITH CD-ROM – NEW EDITION
Oxford University Press, 2009
Understanding which word combines with another word is of paramount importance in vocabulary acquisition. Learning collocations is a meaningful way to make your English sound more natural and native-like. The Oxford Collocations Dictionary for Students of English is a powerful and handy tool to help teachers and students achieve the goal of speaking naturally.
But now it has become even better! The totally new and revised edition of this fantastic dictionary holds many wonderful surprises. The first is the inclusion of American English words such as ‘vacation’, ‘ball’ [meaning baseball], ‘panties’, ‘bill’ [meaning paper money] and many others.
There are also more than 200,000 British and American English collocations, so you will always be able to find the right one for whatever you want to talk or write about. There are also 75,000 examples taken from the authoritative Oxford English Corpus so you can be sure that every collocation and example is real and natural.
With the accompanying CD-ROM, you’ll be able to listen to a word, practice collocations through interactive exercises and activities, and check the right word you need when writing e-mails, film or book reviews, business or informal letters, etc.
The new Oxford Collocations Dictionary for Students of English is definitely the right dictionary for those who care about how words are combined and who wish to express their ideas using the natural word combinations native speakers always use.
As a teacher trainer and specialist in collocations, I highly recommend this dictionary and guarantee that you won’t regret using it.
