This is an excellent acquisition for the student in your home. The work is well-organized. For instance, the presentation is set forth as follows: - a language study section - geographic maps - cultural data - today's English usage - pictures of musical instruments are drawn to a smaller scale
There are thousands of words defined succinctly. Over 12T idioms are set forth. Illustrations are provided for 1700 words.
A sample definition is set forth:
" abbot- a man or person who heads a monastery (abbey)"
The volume is a solid value for the price charged.
