[Extract] The third edition of the Tourism Society's Dictionary for the Tourism Industry has an attractive white and gold cover that catches the eye. The back cover of this small dictionary suggests that is aiming to be a "useful introduction for those new to studying or working in tourism and related industries". A dictionary for a specific field like tourism should be able to explain what terms in vernacular use mean in that field and should explain jargon and specialist terms relevant to that field. Considering this introductory dictionary is aimed to be an introduction to those new to the industry, I think that it achieves both objectives to a fair extent.
