Featuring over a thousand words common to most academic disciplines, it will help students to expand their vocabulary, understand how these words are used and spot mistakes in their own academic writing. Chapters present the words in full sentences, enabling users to see exactly how they are used, and also include additional information on context, connotation and collocations.

This is an ideal reference guide for students of all disciplines and levels who are required to complete written assignments as part of their course. It is also a valuable resource for students looking to fine tune their vocabulary for job searches, interviews and writing for professional purposes.

'I absolutely agree that there is a need for some more specific guidance re vocabulary for native and near native speakers a neglected group in HE as far as writing development is concerned. ... Navigability will be key. If it can work intuitively, this book could be a winner.' - Kate Williams, Oxford Brookes University
'The material is up-to-date and I agree that there is a gap in the market for a work of this nature.' - Lucinda Becker, University of Reading
'The author has done a thorough job in researching the market with no obvious omissions as far as I can see. I would certainly recommend a book to my students that encouraged them to develop an interest in the words they use as a vehicle for their ideas.' - Bryan Greetham, author of How to Write Better Essays
'I like the format; I think that a small, 'accessible' little guide will appeal to students (especially) native speakers more than a full-sized book. I could see myself using/recommending such a book. I think the proposal is most interesting.' - Hayo Reinders, Middlesex University"
