A Sentence Dictionary
By Eric Neal
Rupa & Co | 1991 | ISBN: N/A | PDF | 423 pages | 18 MB
Careful investigations have shown that children understand many words more easily by seeing them used in appropriate sentences than by trying to understand their synonyms listed in a dictionary. The 10,000 words in A Sentence Dictionary are therefore used in sentences skilfully written to make them interesting to students. A special feature is the use of a symbol to separate the meanings of a word, or its uses as different parts of speech. All words, including derivations, are listed alphabeti-cally, since not all users of a dictionary of this kind can be expected to know, for example, that to find the spelling of bought one has to look up buy.
The author is a teacher who has been dealing with pupils' written work in a variety of subjects for many years and has carried out a number of investigations into children's vocabularies and their spelling difficulties. Also he has observed how often children look up a word in their school dictionary and then have to ask the teacher what the explanation means.
