Jump to: navigation, search

A production dictionary is used for writing instead of reading. It is used for choosing the right word for writing and speaking.

A production dictionary is not a Thesaurus.

Example[edit]

The Longman Language Activator is a production dictionary[1]. Each entry is a starting point for related words for the similar concepts. Simple words are used for the main entries. The most common usages are chosen based on a language corpus.
