Macmillan English Dictionary
For Advanced Learners British Edition
Macmillan English Dictionary by Michael Rundell
Book DescriptionThe most up to date, comprehensive and best value students' dictionary on the market. This major new dictionary has been created from scratch, by two teams of over 100 lexicographers, working in Britain and America. Using a corpus of over 200 million words collected from contemporary written and spoken sources, Macmillan English Dictionary gives the most up-to-date information available about the meanings of words and how they are used in today's English. The whole dictionary has been designed for ease of use by students of English. Clear and simple definitions of over 100,000 British and American words and phrases are written using a defining vocabulary of no more than 2500 words. Longer entries are introduced by a menu to help you to find the correct meaning fast. Over 80,000 examples show the defined word in a real context which further strengthens students' understanding. Although English has at least 600,000 different words, 90 percent of all the written and spoken language we read and hear are made up from only 7,500 frequent words. These 7,500 words are highlighted in red, and treated in more detail, with extra information and examples. A practical reference book for the classroom and home, Macmillan English Dictionary helps students with words that are needed for communicating in English, and offers invaluable support for those who want to write and speak accurate and contemporary English.

Original Laws of Cricket, Hardback (May 2008)» View all books by Michael Rundell
Of all the rules governing sport, the laws of cricket are among the oldest. Those of 1744 survive uniquely on a piece of linen at the MCC Museum of Cricket, drawn up when gambling on cricket matches was rife. The story of the evolution of these laws and how they affected the game is a fascinating and seldom told chapter in the history of cricket.
