9780007109180: Collins Plain English Dictionary

Collins Plain English Dictionary presents English in a clear way that speaks directly to the user, without any jargon.

The meanings are all given in full sentences, making the sense much more immediate and understandable – it is as if the dictionary is speaking to you.

The dictionary covers the range of vocabulary met with in newspapers, magazines, and on radio and television. It explains difficult words simply and shades of meanings clearly.

There are real-life examples from the Bank of English showing typical ways words are used.

The foreword has been specially commissioned from Sir Trevor MacDonald, who is well-known for his commitment to, and promotion of, good English.
