100 years after its first publication, the twelfth edition of this world-famous bestseller gives the most up-to-date picture of the English language today. The original 1911 edition, revolutionary at the time for its focus on current English and its use of illustrative examples, combined a
succinct yet approachable style with coverage of everyday as well as specialist terms. This centenary edition continues this ground-
eaking tradition, giving you rich authoritative coverage of English as it is used today.

Review Quotes
Review from previous edition: \"This is the dictionary par excellence for the general reader ... it answers a lot of questions; it is easy to use; it does not take up too much space on a crowded desk.\"
