The growth of the Internet, e-mail, and text messaging means that the boundaries between the written and spoken language are becoming ever more blurred. The explosion of vocabulary in areas like science, technology, e-commerce, and the media confronts us with new specialist terms every day. The need for guidance on using the language correctly, and keeping up with its changes, has never been greater. The Encarta Student Dictionary is the result of a detailed survey of professors, teachers, and students of English and the most common language problems they encounter.
