Oxford Treasury of Sayings and Quotations

Descriere: From Thomas Jefferson's memorable "a fire bell in the night," to the Russian proverb "Do not call a wolf to help you against the dogs," and the English saying "Don't sell the skin till you have caught the bear," the delightful Oxford Treasury of Sayings and Quotations offers a superb compendium of sage advice and colorful expressions, perfect to spice up your writing or a wedding toast, or to help while away a quiet afternoon.
Fully revised and updated, the fourth edition features a fresh design and format, new topics, and more than a thousand new proverbs and sayings from around the world and across the centuries. This rich collection is arranged under a wide range of subjects--from Ability and Advice to Youth and Taxes--making it a snap to find an apt or pithy expression on a particular topic, or to explore the background of an extensive selection of related sayings and phrases. As in earlier editions, the volume traces the links between these treasured sayings and explains their varied origins. In addition, Oxford's unique language research program has identified proverbs from non-Western languages newly adopted into English, and these join an abundance of well-chosen words from Biblical times to the present day. A full keyword index and generous cross- referencing allow the Oxford Treasury of Sayings and Quotations to function both as a look-up resource and a browser's delight. Finally, the fourth edition includes a wide range of new American sources, such as Warren Buffett, Johnny Cash, Betty Davis, Walt Disney, and Barak Obama.
Based on The Oxford Dictionary of Phrase, Saying, and Quotation, this superb Treasury offers a handier and more affordable resource for writers, speakers, and students.

Webster's New World Basic Dictionary of American English

In the United States, 20 percent of the adult population is marginally literate. Of these roughly 30 million people, approximately 1.8 million are enrolled in basic skills literacy programs. Webster's New World has created a dictionary that is uniquely designed to help these beginning readers. Webster's New World Basic Dictionary of American English defines 49,000 of the most commonly used words in the American English lexicon. These are the words adult readers are most likely to encounter in newspapers and magazines, on job applications and product instructions, on advertising billboards and their children's school progress reports. The dictionary defines these words in clear, easy-to-understand language, using only words that are themselves defined in the dictionary, but never condescending to the adult reader. Definitions are liberally supplemented with example phrases and sentences that put words in context and help new readers understand meaning and usage. Special notes on synonyms help new readers differentiate between words with similar meanings. And selected illustrations help readers identify and remember words. This quality paperback book is designed for ease of reading ...
