Description

Pioneers in dictionary making for over 175 years, Collins are now proud to offer a world first: a dictionary accessible through all major media channels. The new edition of Collins English Dictionary gives you the power of Collins online and on your mobile phone -- at no extra cost. Collins English Dictionary, with entry words in colour, is a rich source of words for everyone who loves language. Now updated with the latest terms to enter the language, this dictionary is not only comprehensive and authoritative, but it also offers outstanding coverage of world, regional and dialect English. Including a much wider range of words than ever before, the extensive coverage of geographical, scientific, and technical entries has been updated by our team of leading academic experts. Language notes give advice on using the right word in the right place, and thousands of word histories trace the roots of modern English. All this has been complemented with a refreshingly clutter-free design, which is easy to use and easy on the eye, taking you straight to the information you need with the minimum of fuss.show more
