Osman, Neile
The present volume is designed as a workbook for advanced learners of English as a second or foreign language which will train them through instruction and exercises to use an all-English dictionary.

Sections cover the identification of a word according to its class and function; verb forms, their meanings and usage; other parts of speech; collocations, idiomatic word groups, and compounds. Various types of dictionary entries are dealt with, and detailed instructions in the actual use of a dictionary are given. Numerous examples and exercises are provided; answers are appended. (AMM)
