Oxford Guide to British and American Culture for Learners of English.
Crowther, Jonathan, Ed.; Kavanagh, Kathryn, Ed.
The guide to American and British culture, for upper secondary- and university-level students, is intended for use by learners of English as a second language. It is designed to explain specific aspects of British and American life and traditions not generally included in English language dictionaries. The guide has a dictionary format, with terms or phrases listed alphabetically, and each entry provides pronunciation information, a definition or explanation of the word or phrase cited, and in many cases, supplementary information about its use, connotation, or reference. Entries are written using a limited vocabulary to make them easier for a non-native English speaker to read. A concluding page gives general guidelines for English pronunciation and phonetics. The teacher's handbook suggests techniques for classroom use of the reference. (MSE)
