'Collins COBUILD English Guides' provide extensive information on specific areas of today's English, using the evidence from 'The Bank of English' to select what is really important.
This book is suitable for upper-intermediate and advanced students and teachers of English. Homophones – words which sound the same but are spelled differently – can present problems for students, and a good knowledge of them can help improve spelling and increase vocabulary.

Thorough cross-referencing, clear explanations linking words to their base forms where appropriate, and a comprehensive index make words easy to find.
