The Kernerman Advanced English Dictionary is designed to address the needs of both native English-speakers and students of English at upper-intermediate and advanced levels. The dictionary contains over 50,000 main and sub-entries, reflecting the status of English as the international language of communication.
The dictionary is completely up-to-date, with present-day expressions and vocabulary in science, technology, communications, the arts and humanities. Its goal is to provide information and teach active and appropriate use of words and phrases. Meanings are explained in simple vocabulary and grammar, without the use of abstract terms. The typical usage examples, rich in collocations, are corpus supported and packed with a wealth of information. Irregular plurals, spellings, pronunciations and phonetic transcriptions are all identified. Usage is indicated by labels such as formal, informal and slang. Notes are provided to cover grammatical problems in English, and other points that may be confusing for non-native speakers. Both British and American forms, meanings, spellings and pronunciations are given.
