A new edition of the crosswords puzzle has been launched by Oxford University Press, to help teachers and students better understand how to use the tools.
The puzzle, first released in the US last year, uses a combination of text and illustrations to create a picture of the English word “cross”.
It was created in response to a survey by the Oxford English Dictionary that found the word was widely misunderstood.
Professor John Hartwell, the chief executive of the OED, said the puzzles had helped to clarify the meaning of the word and that the new version had helped “change the way we think about the word”.
“We’re seeing the rise of new, digital crosswords in classrooms, and that’s really exciting,” he said.
“It has the potential to change how people think about crosswords.
We’re all looking for ways of getting across the meanings of words and how they relate to other words.”
And it helps to make people think of the meanings and the meanings are not always in the text.
“Professor Hartwell said the ODE had been particularly impressed with the crosswizard, which has helped teachers understand the meaning and meaning of words, and to make them think more clearly.”
The crossword puzzles are great because they show you how to get to the end of a word,” he added.”
If you have to crossword a word in a text, you can see how to find the answer.
“He said the crosswerks were designed to make the meaning clearer, and helped teachers to see the connections between words.
The crosswizards have been designed by David D’Arcy and Simon Green, both from the Department of Creative Writing at Oxford University.
The puzzles have been used by teachers in schools, including in Reading, and are being launched at the OEBL conference, in Oxford, next week.
The word cross was first used in the Oxford Dictionary in 1797, and the OEN, published in 1842, was the first to introduce the word “words” in the dictionary.
