This fresh new look for the 2007 edition of the Oxford Primary Dictionary features over 30,000 words and phrases in alphabetical order, in a clear and accessible design. Each entry contains simple, easy-to-read numbered meanings, word classes, inflections, and supporting example sentences.Tinted panels throughout focus on overused words, words belonging to the same family, word origins, and key language topics (such as prefixes and suffixes or word origins). Another unique feature is the example sentences by well-known children's authors, such as J.K Rowling, Dick King-Smith,Jacqueline Wilson, and Roald Dahl. These show the words actually in use to reinforce meaning but they also hook children in to using language effectively. Unique to Oxford, they take children beyond looking up a word for spelling or meaning - and on to thinking about reading and writingindependently. The full alphabet appears on every page with a dark blue tab on the letter of the page, and guidewords also appear on every page - great for the child practising their alphabet skills.
