Now updated to show recent biographical and place name changes - with over 8,500 place names and 5,500 biographies you will encounter thousands of fascinating facts and figures at your fingertips. Ideal for use at work, at home and at school - new words, new meanings and new uses are tracked by Collinsí lexicographers who monitor language change around the world. This along with suggestions from the public on the award-winning collinsdictionary.com, ensures Collins English Dictionary truly is the home of living language. Be drawn in by evolving definitions, new, rare and quirky words, while you explore the extraordinary breadth and changing nature of world English with award-winning author Mark Forsythís insights in which he casts an analytical eye over the latest fields and shifts in meaning that the dictionary reflects. This is an unparalleled resource for word lovers, word gamers, and word geeks everywhere. It draws on Collinsí extensive language databases and reintroduces many literary and rare words useful for crossword solvers and setters as well as Scrabble players, including words previously only found in the official Scrabble word list. The 12th edition of the Collins English Dictionary is beautifully designed and printed, and despite the huge increase in words it is now lighter and easier to hold. Designed for day-to-day use, with a clear layout and virtual thumb tabs.
