A First Derivations Dictionary (Softcover)


Please note this edition has been replaced by the new fourth edition.
Derivations (word histories) can help one to fully understand a word yet most begining and intermediate dictionaries do not supply them. Many dictionaries that supply derivations use language too advanced for beginners. This book provides an undercut with over 8600 easy-to-understand derivations. Also included is general information on what derivations actually are, and how to read and understand derivation entries.

There is also an easy to understand history of the English language with maps. This saves a lot of time in understanding the history of the English language and how it relates to the history of England.

This is an invaluable reference for any student who wants a basic understanding of a word's history but does not want to spend time looking up a lot of symbols usually found in other dictionaries that show derivations (that includes most of the advanced and college level dictionaries). This book is a must when you're using a dictionary that doesn't show derivations (that includes most children and intermediate dictionaries and many student dictionaries).
