Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0747548099, Hardcover)

The English language is growing, accelerated by the Internet, e-commerce and global business. It is used by one in five of the world's population, is being learnt by 1 billion people and is the language of 85 per cent of Internet home pages. Throughout the world, business people, tourists, students, teachers and first-time buyers of computers are confronted every day with new words and terms. The need for a manual to this dynamic language has never been greater. "The Encarta[registered] Concise Dictionary", compiled from the same database as the "Encarta[registered] World English Dictionary", is the result of an in-depth survey of professors, teachers, students and parents into the requirements and expectations of all English speakers in the 21st century.Consequently readers will find international coverage of global English, enhanced with innovative features such as: Quick Facts - short digests of key concepts in the arts and science; Literary Links - notes on major works of literature; Internet Guide on navigating and researching on the Internet; Spellchecks - warnings about spelling errors ignored by spellcheckers; Usage Notes - dealing with common queries on spelling and grammar; and, comprehensive coverage of high-technology, scientific and business terms. In addition to this, the "Encarta[registered] Concise Dictionary" provides an easy-to-use layout, 30 tables of key facts and dates, over 700 illustrations, maps and photos, and the reader's attention is drawn to commonly misspelt words.A unique Quick Definition system, with brief definitions in bold, enables the reader to pick out the appropriate sense at speed. "The Encarta[registered] Concise Dictionary" - designed to meet the everyday requirements of all global English speakers - is the first entirely new concise dictionary to be published for two decades. Language is a powerful tool. Read the new manual.
