Review quote

'This dictionary is the most complete guide to the briar patch of the phrasal verb that I have yet seen. It is engagingly thorough - formal, informal, slang, taboo, British, American, even Australian - all are included, My attempts to think up a verb which I could not find proved a failure.' EA Journal, Vol 16, Australia, 1998 'This dictionary will be a source of enlightenment for the many students who struggle to make sense of this very common feature of everyday English ... It is easy to consult and easy to make sense of.' EL Gazette, 1997 'Quite clearly there is a definite and concrete need for an effective dictionary of phrasal verbs and this book, true to CUP's tradition of academic excellence in publishing, fulfills that need ... This is a welcome and necessary addition to the armoury of teachers and schools and it addresses an area of language that is difficult, interesting, but often neglected in the EFL classroom.' Authenically English, 1998 'This is a well thought out and very well produced dictionary of phrasal verbs that avoids the confusing complexities of its rivals ..." English Today, 1998 'The Cambridge International Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs contains all the information about this difficult aspect of the English Language necessary for using phrasal verbs confidently and accurately.' Ludmila Gorodetskaya, Moscow State University
