Product Description

The new edition of the Collins COBUILD Learner''s Dictionary offers detailed coverage of today''s language and additional information on grammar, frequency, usage and pragmatics, making it ideally suited to learners of English. A complete reference tool, this corpus-based learner''s dictionary provides invaluable guidance to students wishing to study English at this level.

About the Author

Through a collaborative initiative, Collins COBUILD and Heinle are co-publishing a dynamic new line of learner''s dictionaries offering unparalleled pedagogy and learners'' resources. The first Collins COBUILD dictionary was published in 1987, thanks in part to John Sinclair, one of the very first modern corpus linguists who personally oversaw the creation of the Bank of English. Every COBUILD dictionary is based on the Bank of English, a huge electronic database of both written and spoken language, which today contains over 650 million words.

If you have ever struggled to understand the dictionary definition of a word or figure out how it might be used then this is the perfect dictionary for you. If you have an upper elementary, middle school or high school student this dictionary offers a broad range of words with easy to understand definitions and example sentences that make it very easy to understand the words. The usein sentences can be a HUGE help to using the words in context.

I found the Collins Cobuild Dictionary to be an excellent source. I am using it as part of lesson buildin for an Orton-Gillingham based program, Wilson Language and have found it resourceful. It lets you know how common (usage) every word it and even further identifies all words via a star rating at the end of the book. The definitions and sentences given are very comprehensible as well.

I bought this dictionary when teaching the Wilson Reading Program. The definitions are very child oriented and they understand the meanings of words so much better.

This is the dictionary you want!
Reviewed in the United States on December 27, 2012
If you teach kids, or have kids, this is the dictionary you want. Webster''s is fine if you have a strong vocabulary to begin with, but the co build dictionary is helpful for those students with weaker vocabularies and reading skills

以下、参考までに語彙レベルを書きます。

Collins English Dictionary > Cobuild Advanced Learner''s Dictionary ≒ Cobuild Learner''s Dictionary Concise Edtion > Collins Cobuild English/Japanese Advanced Dictionary of American English ≒ Cobuild Intermediate Learner''s Dictionary >> Cobuild Essential English Dictionary

それぞれ掲載されている語彙を見比べてみた所、こんな感じだと思います。間違ってたら訂正お願いします。

IntermediateとEssentialの差が大きい割に、それ以上となるとさほど差が無い中に複数の辞書がある気がします。

Cobuild Advanced Learner''s Dictionaryと比べて本書の特徴:
•軽い
•若干収録語彙が少ない
•ダイヤ印での頻度表示が詳細。Advancedでは上位3つだけだったのが、さらに下に2つのランクが追加されて5つまでのダイヤ表示がある。
•最新のAdvancedでは品詞などの情報が欄内に収まっているものが、Learner''sでは欄外にある。そのため余白が多く書き込みがしやすい。
•例文の数が多少少ない。
•説明が若干短いので、細かいニュアンスが足りないことがある。

供に2色刷りというのは同じですね。細かい違い、特にダイヤの数にこだわりが無ければ収録語彙が多く最新のAdvancedを買った方が良いかも知れません。
