9780007298464: Collins English Dictionary: 30th Anniversary Edition

To mark the 30th anniversary of the publication of the first edition, Collins is proud to announce a major new edition of its flagship dictionary. Updated with the latest terms to enter the language, Collins English Dictionary is not only comprehensive and authoritative, but also offers outstanding coverage of world, regional and dialect English. Collins English Dictionary is a rich source of words for everyone who loves language. This new 30th anniversary edition includes the latest words to enter the English language as well as a wide range of biographical entries. Usage notes give advice on using the right word in the right place, and thousands of etymologies trace the roots of modern English. A clear, two-colour page design helps to make this dictionary accessible and easy to use, and the new virtual thumb tab makes it even easier to find the entry you are looking for. The dictionary includes a supplement on words on the cusp of entering the language, as well as an extended essay on how English has changed in the last 30 years, and looking forwards to the next 30 years. All definitions, examples, idioms, and usage notes are based on the Collins Corpus -- our unrivalled and constantly updated 2.5 billion-word database of today's English - making it an authoritative and up-to-the-minute reference source.

Review:

"wonderful coverage of current English ! the layout is appealing to the read" reader review of CED 9th edition on amazon.co.uk "The best single-volume English dictionary ! the typefaces used are the most attractive of any dictionary" reader review of CED 9th edition on amazon.co.uk "I find Collins English Dictionary invaluable because is it an encyclopaedia as well a dictionary, and it stands up to really intensive use." John Grant, Crossword Editor, The Times "The dictionary I reach for first !" Roger Cooper, Sunday Telegraph "It has offered to a current generation of students the possibility that the study of language might be exciting, as it was to Dr. Johnson. In short, I think it's brilliant." Professor B A Harris, University of Dublin "I spend my working life with the Collins dictionary permanently open. It is, in its way, a masterpiece. On New Scientist it is also a bible; we take all our spellings from it (with a few exceptions) ! The dictionary has managed to take advances in science in its stride." Peter Wrobel, New Scientist "I have never known a dictionary with such scope. The biographical entries are particularly useful. I would not be without it for anything." Professor John Carey, Merton College, Oxford "The inclusion of so many proper names and colloquialisms is especially valuable." Penelope Lively "It is a stupendous achievement ! the best and sanest interpretative dictionary I have ever seen." Auberon Waugh, The Spectator
