Longman: Dictionary of English Language and Culture
During my work as a production editor at Pearson Education / Addison Wesley Longman in Harlow (UK), the coordination of this publication was my main achievement. Still on sale around the world.
The book combines a complete language dictionary with 15,000 cultural and encyclopedic entries covering people, places, history, geography, the arts and popular culture.
It contains 80,000 words and phrases with clear definitions using the 2000-word Longman Defining Vocabulary as well as updated feature pages on topics including festivals, special days and key events in British and American history.
