Scholastic Pocket Dictionary

by Scholastic

The new updated Scholastic Pocket Dictionary is an essential resource that features: current computer, scientific, and cultural terms; clear definitions, usage guides; part-of-speech identifications; alternate word forms; a pronuncitation guide that spells words the way they sound; and an inviting design.

The Scholastic Pocket Dictionary was created from the database used for the best-selling Scholastic Children's Dictionary. Its important features include:

  • Design — The three-color design was created to appeal to middle graders. The generously spaced two-column format makes it easy for students to locate the words they need.

  • Pronunciation key — An easy-to-use phonetic pronunciation system is used so kids don't have to decipher confusing symbols. We also provide pronunciations for all words, unlike our competitors.
