English Dictionary For South African Schools
Pharos Dictionaries

School Dictionary

Pharos’s brand-new monolingual English dictionary focuses on defining approximately 10 000 frequently used Standard English words, expressions and phrases, which learners need in their everyday lives.

Every word, expression or phrase treated in Pharos’s English Dictionary for South African Schools, provides a simple definition, and the use thereof is illustrated by a complete sentence.

The dictionary includes grammatical information such as the part of speech for each lemma, plural forms of nouns, past tense forms of verbs, negative forms of adjectives, and masculine and feminine forms. Abbreviations are treated in the main list, and cross references are used in cases where users can find more information at a related word.

The dictionary is aimed at expanding a learner’s vocabulary, to promote language usage and written abilities, and even to expand a learner’s knowledge about South African English.

This must-have reference is suitable for Afrikaans and English Home Language and First Additional language learners, at home and in the classroom.
