Overview

Here is the Ninth Edition of the world's longest-established and best-selling pocket English dictionary. As one of the new generation of Oxford dictionaries derived from the database of the highly-acclaimed New Oxford Dictionary of English, it is particularly user friendly, boasting an elegant, open design which starts different elements on new lines.
With more than 140,000 clearly explained definitions and entries, the Ninth Edition offers excellent coverage of English as an international language. The definitions are straightforward and non-technical, with thousands of examples to illustrate idiomatic usage. All irregular noun, verb, and adjectival inflections are spelled out in full, while guidance on grammar and usage is provided by in-text notes. Additional features include Wordbuilder boxes giving information on related words, and thematic tables on subjects such as countries, chemical elements, and nationalities.
