Oxford  Learner’s Dictionary of Academic English

The Oxford Learner’s Dictionary of Academic English (OLDAE) focuses exclusively on academic language and the way it is used in academic contexts. It helps students learn the words and phrases used in academic writing, and how to use them in their own academic written work.

Extensive analysis of existing research, together with the creation of the 85-million-word Oxford Corpus of Academic English, formed the foundation for this ground-breaking dictionary. It provides all the tools students need to develop their academic writing skills.

Available in print , with CD-ROM
(CD-ROM includes Oxford Academic iWriter, an interactive writing tutor, which guides and supports students with planning, writing and reviewing their academic written work. Watch the  Academic iWriter demo )
