Oxford Collocations Dictionary
For Students of EnglishBook - 2009
The Oxford Collocations Dictionary improves students' accuracy by showing them the words that work together in both British and American English. Using the dictionary develops a better awareness of which words go together and helps students sound more natural.The dictionary is an essential tool for students preparing for the Cambridge ESOL First Certificate or Proficiency Exam, IELTS, or studying other subjects in English whichrequire writing in English e.g. reports for a science subject, economics.Students look up a word they know to find which words are used with it. Each entry is organized around a word and itscollocates. The collocates are grouped by part of speech - i.e. verbs that collocate with the entry are listed together. Students can look up the meaning of any unfamiliar words on the CD-ROM. 25 Usage notes show students collocations shared by sets of words such as seasons, currencies, and languages.Interactive exercises on the CD-ROM and in the 16-page photocopiable Study section put the collocations into practice, helping students to internalisethem so they no longer need to keep looking them up.
