Jim Bob's insight:

The Oxford dictionary is a really helpful tool. The book helps in many different ways for which even more options are being added to help support humanities in the United Kingdom. Phonetics is a great reference for remembering things in the English language. It also helps navigate around secondary languages supported with a basic understanding of linguistics you are good to go.

 

Linguistics is quite a broad subject so it is good to break the categories down if you really want to grasp a language and speak like the Romans do; for example RP short for Received Pronunciation gives you to accent and by examining Phonology you can target the areas of the throat and mouth to help you pronunciate correctly. This will help you form more accurate accents when reading the news.
