Times 1000 Word Dictionary has been compiled with the aim of making learning both stimulating and fun for children. This is important for children of primary school age in whom an eagerness to learn and discover can be so readily instilled.

All the entries are based on wordlists of the major textbooks used in the lower primary schools. Meanings of all entries are shown in ordinary sentence form with illustrations in full colour for further clarification.

The entry is printed in bold type. The pronunciation of each entry is shown using symbols from the International Alphabet. Where there are different meanings for one word, these are shown in separate sentences.

Certain words have been grouped together under one entry

  • e.g. building: school, house, shop, cinema, fire station, factory
  • machine: vacuum cleaner, iron, scanner. computer, bulldozer, toaster, sewing machine
  • shape: circle, rectangle, square, triangle, cone
  • tree: pine, willow, mango, palm

At the end of the dictionary, there are five supplements covering:

  • The Calendar
  • The Family Tree
  • Festivals
  • Numbers
  • Time

The supplements are designed to enable children to learn a word in the context of the group it is associated with.

The artist has chosen a group of names and given each a special character. They are featured in the illustrations according to the characteristics that suit the mood of a particular sentence. This and the warmth and humour of the illustrations add a unique quality to this dictionary.
