New full-page writing sections and 'Get It Right' boxes help you to become a more confident writer in academic and professional situations. The 'Improve your writing skills' section in the centre of the dictionary gives you advice on writing in 18 areas that often cause difficulties, while 'Get It Right' boxes at individual headwords help you to anticipate mistakes that you might make and show you how to correct them.
These boxes often also highlight common collocations, present alternatives to over-used words and point out the differences between words that are easy to confuse. This material has been created following a two-year collaboration with the Centre for English Corpus Linguistics, led by Professor Sylviane Granger, at the Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium.
The new 'Expand Your Vocabulary' section in the centre of the dictionary - on the themes of movement, communication and emotions - helps you to choose the right word at the right time, and to use it correctly and idiomatically.
