Review Text

All the features that have made this dictionary a favourite are present in the new edition: sensible coverage (thorough and up to date, with 180,000 references); clear definitions (196,000 of them); modern meanings first (based on a 323-million-word corpus); pronunciations in the International Phonetic Alphabet; encyclopedic entries (18,500-plus in this edition and generally well chosen). The page design has the same clean look as before and, unless standards have slipped, the binding stands up to years of hard use. It is still our first choice. (Kirkus UK)show more
