Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198614241, Paperback)

This is a new and fully updated edition of the Paperback Oxford English Dictionary, offering over 120,000 words, phrases, and definitions. It covers all the words you need for everyday use, carefully selected from the evidence of the Oxford English Corpus, a databank of 21st century English, containing hundreds of millions of words. For the new edition the definitions are clearer than ever before and there are extra usage notes to help with tricky points of grammar. Brand-new spelling notes give quick and easy help on commonly misspelled words, such as exaggerate and necessary. A brand-new Factfinder centre section gives quick-reference entries on people, places, and events, as well as useful lists of, for example, the world's seas and oceans, presidents and prime ministers, and countries and currencies. This portable and affordable dictionary is ideal for puzzle and crossword-solving, but also perfect for general reference at home, at school, or in the office. A new open design ensures that this dictionary is even more accessible and easier to use than ever before. The dictionary includes 3 months' access* to Oxford's premium online dictionary and thesaurus service, Oxford Dictionaries Pro, updated regularly with the latest developments to words and meanings, so you will have the most accurate picture of English available. Find out more about our living language using Oxford Dictionaries Pro. Hear how words are spoken with thousands of audio pronunciations, and access over 1.9 million real English example sentences to see how words are used in context. Improve your confidence in writing with helpful grammar and punctuation guides, full thesaurus information, style and usage help, and much more. *Available in selected markets (UK, Europe, Australia, Canada, and South Africa). Terms and conditions apply; please see www.oxforddictionaries.com/access for information.
