Description

Now in colour, "Collins English Dictionary" is a rich source of words for everyone who loves language. Not only is the dictionary 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. Fully-revised 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. The features include: have confidence - discover all the latest words as they appear in the language; get it right - you can rely on Collins; all our definitions, examples, idioms and usage notes are based on the Collins Word Web - our unrivalled and constantly updated 2.5 billion-word database of today's English; and get there fast - accessible brand-new layout that's easy on the eye, guiding you quickly to what you want. The other titles include: "Collins English Dictionary: Complete and Unabridged" and "Collins English Dictionary Desktop Edition" (ISBN 0-00-716334-7). Words are tools for life. And a "Collins Dictionary" makes them work for you.show more
