Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198611889, Hardcover)

Over one million copies of the fifth edition of the Little Oxford Dictionary have been sold since its publication in 1980. This most thorough revision to date features:

· New larger format.

· Far more attractive pages than any other dictionary of its price.

· Great increase in contemporary vocabulary, especially technical and scientific terms. New words include: ageism, aikido, allergenci, futon, privatize, surrogate mother, tofu, user-friendly.

· Different senses of words ordered by frequency of use.

· Abbreviations kept to a minimum.

· Pronunciations given in the International Phonetic Alphabet.

· New appendix on some vexing questions of pronunciation, spelling, plurals, meaning, and grammar (such as all right, decimate, shall/will) added to those on countries and the metric system.
