The Oxford Elementary Dictionary helps learners understand what words mean, and how to use them correctly, with the additional support of translations in Persian at the bottom of the page. The dictionary focuses on the essential information that elementary learners need most. A key symbol
identifies the 2,000 most important words to know, taken from the Oxford 3000TM*. These 2,000 words are used as the defining vocabulary so explanations are easy to understand. Corpus-based examples show how words work in practice, helping students use words correctly.
The Notes help students with culture, grammar, pronunciation, speaking, spelling, and word building. Illustrations throughout the dictionary make difficult words easy to understand. These words are the most important because they occur frequently in the language, are widely used (in science, arts,
spoken English, etc), or because there are no alternative words to express the same meaning (for example, vegetables, hungry, aunt). Oxford 3000TM keywords are used in the Oxford Wordpower Dictionary, 3rd edition, and the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, 7th and 8th editions.
