This book has been written for students who are planning to take the Cambridge First Certificate in
English (the FCE) and who want to develop their vocabulary for the exam.
The various exercises throughout the book focus on the vocabulary that FCE students would expect to
use in the Speaking, Writing and Use of English papers, or that they might come across in the Reading
or Listening papers.

Scottish is now the usual adjective; Scotch is restricted to a fairly large number of fixed expressions, e. g. Scotch broth, egg, whisky; Scots is used mainly for the Scottish dialect of English, in the names of regiments, and in Scotsman, Scotswoman (Scotchman, -woman are old-fashioned). To designate the inhabitants of Scotland, the plural noun Scots is normal.
Identifying domain-dependent opinion words is a key problem in opinion mining and has been studied by several researchers. However, existing work has been focused on adjectives and to some extent verbs. Limited work has been done on nouns and noun phrases. In our work, we used the feature-based opinion mining model, and we found that in some domains nouns and noun phrases that indicate product features may also imply opinions.
This paper explores the determinants of adjective-noun plausibility by using correlation analysis to compare judgements elicited from human subjects with five corpus-based variables: co-occurrence frequency of the adjective-noun pair, noun frequency, conditional probability of the noun given the adjective, the log-likelihood ratio, and Resnik's (1993) selectional association measure. The highest correlation is obtained with the co-occurrence frequency, which points to the strongly lexicalist and collocational nature of adjective-noun combinations.
Recent advances in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) offer a significant new approach to studying semantic representations in humans by making it possible to directly observe brain activity while people comprehend words and sentences. In this study, we investigate how humans comprehend adjective-noun phrases (e.g. strong dog) while their neural activity is recorded. Classification analysis shows that the distributed pattern of neural activity contains sufficient signal to decode differences among phrases. ...
