Longman - Dictionary Of Contemporary English (Kèm CD-Rom)
There is a third indispensable factor: the pedagogical experience and expertise that guide the Pearson Education team to present language learners with the information on current world English that is most necessary for them. The information is presented in a way that anticipates the learners' needs to understand meanings and to express those meanings idiomatically in their own speech and writing.
The new LDOCE is a magnificent culmination of innovative energetic research along with computational techniques that are married to well-honed educational and lexicographical skills. It builds on the vital experience of earlier editions and incorporates a host of new features - such as the full-colour printing, the extra wealth of information on collocations (just glance for a moment at the entry for the word pace and its 'collocation box'). And everything in the printed dictionary can be extensively followed up in the accompanying CD-ROM where you will find a further eighty thousand example sentences, plus more than a million sentences direct from the Corpus. Not to mention the enormous bonus of having the Longman Language Activator included as well.
