Review:

'CDAE is a fine achievement. Its careful organisation, clear definitions, cogent examples and crisp typography will attract the interest of English learners everywhere.' Professor David Crystal

The CD-ROM version is a fast reference with the ability to search for phrases within the definitions. I was impressed with its ability to pronounce words out loud for students. One of the greatest language problems teachers face, pronunciation, could be greatly reduced with this instrument.' American Language Review

'The immediate attraction of this dictionary is that it comes with a CD-ROM which adds a great dimension to browsing. Browsing for pronunciation is instantly converted from misery to fun and if not addictive, is definitely moreish.' SATEFL Newsletter, Jan 2001
