The School Dictionary


The School Dictionary is completely relevant to the needs of young people who are studying a wide range of subjects through the medium of English and preparing for school examinations. It explains - clearly and accurately - the vocabulary needed for successful study in any of the key school subjects.

At every stage, experienced teachers, textbook writers, and syllabus designers have contributed their expertise, giving us a clear idea of what the dictionary's users really need to know. In addition, we have used state-of-the-art software to analyse the corpora, so that we have a reliable scientific basis for selecting the words to include in the dictionary and for deciding how much information is needed about each word.

  • Curriculum words in the dictionary are clearly identified in red using one of twenty subject labels (see panel for a list of these labels). Click here to view a sample from part of a dictionary page.
  • Over 100 pictures and diagrams throughout the dictionary illustrate everything from flora and fauna to natural or scientific processes.
  • Over 20 full-page illustrations, many in two colours, present and reinforce topic vocabulary. Click here to see a full-page illustration.
  • The Study Skills section provide extra tips for school work and includes information on: 
  • Dealing with Data
  • Experiments and Projects
  • Capital Letters and Punctuation
  • Composition Skills
  • Information and Communication Technology
  • Revision and Examination Skills
