Synopsis

This new edition of "The Oxford English Reference Dictionary" extends the aims of conventional dictionaries and seeks to be more useful, more practical and more informative. It combines an authoritative and up-to-date Oxford dictionary with encyclopaedic proper-name and in-depth entries. New words in the language are included, as well as spellings, grammar information, pronunciations and word origins. A 16-page full-colour map section, including the latest border and name changes, is accompanied by a large section of reference appendices (including countries of the world, prime ministers and presidents, the body, the solar system, and a chronology of world events).
