5th grade daughter needs a dictionary that also shows the root word.?



Answers:
Get the Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary. Are you sure your home's hardcover dictionary does not show the root word?
Pretty much all dictionaries show the root word. Look in the ( ) at the beginning of the definition, right after the pronunciation. It says what the word came from, & then the roots of that word.

This is about $15 from Barnes & Noble. There's a Book 2 also, for grades 6-9. Hope this helps.
