Book News
So-called plain English, especially US spelling and idioms, is frequently anything but self-evident. Spelling rules, terms and abbreviations, a pronunciation key (most representative of the West, Midwest!), dictionary with key words in definitions defined, idioms and phrases index with sample sentences, and a gazetteer with maps help make mastering American English less daunting. Future editions would be improved with the addition of section tabs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

McGraw Hill
This simplified dictionary of American English, containing over 22,000 words, phrases, and idioms, is an essential reference for English learners at all levels. Definitions are given in plain English, parts of speech are identified, and there is abundant cross-referencing.
