As a dictionary(English to English) offers the transcriptions of all words: it helps to understand and learn the pronunciation. Therefore it increases the knowledge of getting different meaning, synonymous words, application etc of each word.If we get the soft copy of this dictionary, it will be much more helpful to listen the utterance even.

My students are learning IPA phonemes, all of them have dictionaries. I teach them how to use dictionaries and I think it's very important to learn how to use dictionary.

Many of us may have it inheritedly.

So all of us should have the hard copy and the soft copy of the dictionary from English to English.

Everybody should carry a dictionary, be he or she is a student or a professional. To develop and enrich our knowledge of English language, going through a good English to English dictionary and looking up words from it are must. I personally use Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary.

Thank you, Shibli Sir, Arafat and Sajib for your enthusiastic posts!!!!!!!!!

Actually the students can not get their teachers all the time to ask frequently about the pronunciation and meaning of words.

And I am answering the questions of Arafat...........Cambridge Dictionary is excellent to use. It is providing you one CD. If you install it in your computer, it will help you to get the exact utterance and to pick up the meaning even.:-X :-X
