Longman "Basic Dictionary of American English"
Longman "Basic Dictionary of American English" 1999 ISBN 0582 33251 6
paperback 5"x8" - 370 pages. 10,000 words with cartoon illustrations.
This is an advanced beginner or intermediate dictionary using a reduced
vacabulary of 2,075 words with 48 affix (10 prefix and 38 suffix). Pronounciation
is addressed with 47 symbols and six Americanisms.
An appendix lists irregular verbs and Longman's "defining wordlist".
The book is considered as a modern example of a reasoned, reduced
vocabulary, albeit larger than Ogden's selection. The Longman vocabulary is
used in the publisher's line of text and reading books.
