Collins English Dictionary 5 out of 5 stars


book cover AbleStable 5 Star Award The Collins English Dictionary presents a lexicon of words, clearly defined and elegantly presented. For those that wish to understand the kernel of what a word represents, the Collins English Dictionary cannot be bettered.

Detailed Description

The successful Millennium Edition is now updated. People and places, which have proved such an asset in the Dictionary, have the latest dates and populations. This enables you to have all the facts and figures at your fingertips, as well as the whole breadth and depth of the language described and explained.

The Collins English Dictionary covers the whole range of English: from historical to modern; from formal to slang; from aeronautics to zoology; from British English to Australian English. All this is presented clearly, in explanatory entries that are easy to find and well laid out. With the added feature of thumb tabs. In addition there are notes to help you deal with difficult or disputed points in written English; pronunciations guides for spoken English; and etymologies that trace the roots of modern English.

AbleStable® Review
5 out of 5 stars

Of all the English dictionaries out there I believe the Collins English Dictionary presents the clearest definitions, especially of the more 'difficult' concepts like hope, beauty, and art etc. The Oxford English Dictionary may present the standard text but I often find this dry and of less worth in understanding the root or concept of a word as compared with the Collins English Dictionary.

There may be dictionaries that boast a larger contemporary scope, but for clarity and simplicity, it is the Collins English Dictionary that always finds a treasured place on my desk.
