The #Oxford #Dictionary of #Difficult #Words presents the words we really need to know, without the added burden of those we never look up. The definitions are concise and clear, and are enhanced by sentences and phrases that show the word, or a certain sense of it, used in context.
Everyday words we know as well as we know our own names, and we use them as naturally as breathing. But what about those thousands of other words that we can't quite commit to memory—but that come up all the time in reading, in meetings, or in the classroom? Words like lucubrate ('discourse learnedly in writing'), demesne ('land attached to
a manor'), and cynosure ('a person or thing that is the center of attention or admiration') hover on the margins of our vocabularies.
We run across such words from time to time, and when we do we may not know quite what they mean, or we simply draw a blank.
Usage notes are there to help make your use of words more precise and powerful.
This dictionary will help you understand words outside your every day "working" vocabulary, words that are too learned, specialized, or highbrow for day-to-day usage. Abundant cross references help distin guish words that are related ('deism' and 'theism') or opposite ('esoteric' and 'exoteric'). The Oxford Dictionary of Difficult Words is a handy reference that can be carried with you to enhance your reading and learning experience wherever you go.
