The sixth edition of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary is updated, enlarged and enlivened with new words, new definitions, revised illustrative quotations--and a fully customizable CD-ROM.
If the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary is the mother of all dictionaries, the Shorter is its most accomplished offspring. At a fraction of the price, the Shorter offers much of the same content, and provides the same quality of lexical excellence as its parent dictionary.
No other dictionary comes close to the Shorter's range and depth. It offers over 500,000 definitions covering virtually every word or phrase in use in the English language--worldwide--since 1700. Each entry identifies a word's various meanings, origins, part of speech, pronunciation, and presents combinations in which the word is often found as well as cross-references to related words. The Shorter offers a historical and literary approach made famous by the OED, which no competitor can match.
Now with 2,500 new words and meanings based on the ongoing research program of Oxford Dictionaries and the Oxford English Corpus, the Shorter is fresher than ever. Some of the new words included in this edition are; Afrobeat, carbon-neutral, darknet, heaviosity, impactful, knuckle-dragger, nanomaterial, retro-futurist, smoosh, testosteronic, webinar, and thousands more. Also new to this edition is a never-before-published, introductory essay by language commentator David Crystal on the History of English providing stimulating insight into the development of the English language.

    i can't read CS Lewis with out the help of these Dictionaries (they come with a download version so i read Lewis at the computer) CE Lewis takes several words puts them together to reach a clearer thought (he's Irish and we get to make up words-its a rule- and He was schooled very heavily in Greek and Latin) so after struggling with understanding what this Great Writer was saying i got the Oxford specifically for the in-depth greek and latin Now i get what he mean- Nice My daughter came for a visit and she was worried for her mom that i had bought 2 dictionaries and i showed her where these were not one volume x2 but Two volumes to 1 great work She had kept my Webster Collegiate that i had used to homeschool them (they were #98 and 99 in the northwest for graduated knowledge, even the Tester was impressed, we had a lot of fun finding words and creating subjects to do) You can't go wrong with these for middle school through college and BEYOND as gifts that will never grow old Words will never go out of style :) PEACE and GRACE LOVE WON m
