Description

The Concise Oxford English Dictionary is a world-famous bestseller, chosen by thousands of users for its up-to-date and authoritative coverage of the English language. It contains over 240,000 words, phrases, and definitions, providing meanings for everyday words including scientific and technical vocabulary, as well as English from around the world. This revised edition of the dictionary has been updated with hundreds of new words and phrases drawn from ongoing language research of the Oxford Reading Programme and the Oxford English Corpus. This edition also features a new centre section, with quick-reference word lists (containing, for example, lists of Unusual Words, and Onomatopoeic Words), and a revised and updated English Uncovered supplement, which presents interesting facts about the English language. The revised edition of the Concise Oxford English Dictionary also retains such popular features as the Word Histories and Usage Notes that can be found throughout the A-Z text of the dictionary. This luxury edition includes thumb indexes and a page ribbon to mark your place, and is beautifully presented with printed endpapers and coloured head and tailbands. A convenient reference for the home, office, and school, it is also an ideal gift for friends or family.
