Now in print through its various editions for almost a century, the Concise Oxford English Dictionary is one of the most popular choices in Oxford's renowned dictionary line, selected by decades of users for its up-to-date and authoritative coverage of the English language.
Offering the user access to over 240,000 words, phrases and definitions, the CD-ROM version of the dictionary offers full-text search functionality, instant look-up from Windows documents (including email and the internet), and high-quality spoken pronunciations for thousands of words, making it ideal for family use, as well as for homework and school use. The CD-ROM is also Mac-compatible for the first time, due to brand new software. This edition also features a supplementary section, with quick-reference word lists (containing, for example, lists of Unusual Words, and Onomatopoeic Words), and a revised and updated English Uncovered supplement, which presents interesting facts about the English language. The volume retains such popular features as the hundreds of usage notes which give advice on tricky vocabulary and pointers to help you improve your use of English. Finally, the dictionary contains full appendices on topics such as alphabets, currencies, electronic English, and the registers of language (from formal to slang), plus a useful Guide to Good English with advice on grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
Authoritative and up to date, the Concise Oxford English Dictionary on CD-ROM offers unsurpassed coverage of English, perfect for anyone who needs a handy, reliable resource for home, school, or office.
