Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review If you're desperate to spell 'separate' correctly, or to know when to use 'dependant' instead of 'dependent', this is the book you need. More than 25,000 words are listed on clearly designed and easy-to-use pages, with many helpful notes about the rules of spelling. It's been prepared with Key Stage 2 children in mind, and there's no doubting its value as an aid to increasing literacy - at school and at home. Manchester Evening News The impressive Oxford School Spelling Dictionary offers alternative letter sounds - for example; when looking up 'f' as a first letter sound, it suggests you also try 'ph'. Some words have footnotes for you to check if you have the right one. Panels highlight problems such as 'ible' and 'able' and give information to build knowledge of spelling rules. Instructions for using the dictionary are provided. Junior Education ...a reference book that could easily be used independently and quickly by very many children. School Library Association For use at home or school, the Oxford School Spelling Dictionary is easy-to-use and comprehensive. With more than 25,000 essential words listed in colour, it's easy to find words quicker than ever before. Courier Newspapers
