A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This is a revised edition of the bestselling dictionary suitable for upper intermediate to advanced learners of English. Students from the age of 13 upwards can enjoy the benefits of clear signposting, examples and authentic spoken English, fixed phrases, full American English coverage and detailed frequency information, as well as the clearest possible definitions using the carefully monitored and updated 2000-word Longman Defining Vocabulary. As over 95% of all communication is speech, the dictionary provides coverage of spoken as well as written English, aiming to help students feel totally confident. Analysis of the spoken corpus of British and American English, nearly 15 million words of natural, spontaneous speech, reveals phrases that only occur, or most frequently occur, in spoken English.

This helps students to see which words occur more frequently that others, therefore allowing them to concentrate on learning these core words first. There are also 150 frequency graphs giving students instant information about the frequency of different grammar patterns, the differences in usage of British and American English and the frequency of written versus spoken words and phrases. The dictionary features signposts, simple subheadings of the main word which break the definition up into manageable chunks so that the student doesn't have to read all t

134 Pinkham, Mary Ellen MARY ELLEN'S CLEAN HOUSE! : THE ALL-IN-ONE-PLACE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CONTEMPORA RY HOUSEKEEPING
Crown 1993 0517588234 / 9780517588239 Hardcover VG+/VG+ 
What do you need to know in order to keep house and also keep your sanity? How to find a home? How to furnish it? How to clean it? How to store stuff? How to do laundry? How to give a party? Look no further! Mary Ellen, of "H elpful Hints" fame, has put it all together in this survival manual. Here i s all the information your mother never taught you or that she tried to tea ch you while you weren't paying attention. Comparable in subject but not in scope to Heloise from A to Z , Mary Ellen's Clean House! is a comprehensiv e encylopedia, while Heloise's work is merely a collection of loosely relat ed suggestions. Both titles would have benefited from an index, but Mary El len's arrangement is easier to use.

EMILY POST'S ETIQUETTE (16TH EDITION), Post, Peggy
137 Post, Peggy EMILY POST'S ETIQUETTE (16TH EDITION)
William Morrow 1997 0062700782 / 9780062700780 Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A tight clean hardcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library edition: Earlier in this century people turned to Emily Post for etiquette advice ab out the way they lived in the rapidly changing age known as the Roaring Twe nties. As we prepare to enter a new millennium people continue to turn to E mily Post for advice on etiquette and manners. While etiquette remains a co de ofbehavior based on kindness, consideration and unselfishness that does not change, our manners, the practice of etiquette, must change as our worl d changes. The world of today is both vasdy different and astonishingly the same as the world Emily Post herself knew. Seventy-five years after Emily Post wrote her groundbreaking book, Peggy Post, her great-grand-daughter-in -law, has thoroughly revised and updated Emily Post's Etiquette to take us into the next century. The hallmarks that define Emily Post's Etiquette as an indispensable resource remain: the correct table-setting for an intimate dinner party of eight, the proper response to a formal third-person invitation, and of course, all the details of planning a wedding. But in a world where our neighbors and coworkers are as likely to come from the other side of the globe as the other side of town, changes both subde and radical are necessary in our manners. In addition to a chapter devoted to doing business internationally, readers find not only advice for visiting those from other cultures living in our country, but also guidance on wearing ethnic clothing when traveling in other countries. Previous editions have explained the traditions of Christianity and Judaism but now for the first time rea
