10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Richard Randall on 24 Feb 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is a large dictionary, one for the bookshelf, not a carry-around. It is comprehensive, well bound and the entries are presented pleasingly, with quite a lot of etymological and historical detail. It has a modern, contemporary approach to definitions, as well as including the classical ones, and what I liked was the wealth of biographical detail - why, even Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe gets a mention! This gives the work a slightly encyclopaedic aspect. Internet and computer language/jargon is well covered.

Good value for a modest price.

20 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Carolyn H on 18 Nov 2011
Format: Hardcover
A very comprehensive reference of modern-day English words and phrases, including UK, US and Australian usage. It is quite large due to Collins practice of assigning a new headword to each variant phrase rather than including them within one long section under one heading. The definitions are outstandingly clear and easy to read. It also has a good selection of scientific and technical terms, as well as biographical, historical and geographical references. A book for modern usage rather than obscure spellings. It also has a ribbon. Pronunciation is via the International Phonetic symbols and not the more natural ones used for example by Chambers. A very good buy - my only criticism is that its a bit heavy to hold.

Collins English Dictionary is a good dictionary. Yes, it is! It is so good that I own each edition from the 6th to 10th edition. The idea to buy a newest 11th edition has formed in my mind for quite a while. With the release of the 9th edition, the publisher provided a free download of a Windows-based application for print version owners. The 10th edition was published at the time when mobile devices were growing in popularity. I was happy to have an iOS version of the 30th anniversary edition, i.e. the 10th edition, running on my iPhone 4 and iPad.

An electronic version, either Windows-based or iOS-based, has proven highly efficient, portable, and usable. It's hard for a user like me who feels completely at ease with electronic versions to go back to use a dictionary by turning pages. I've shelved my plan to buy an 11th edition pending a direct reply from the publisher. Unfortunately, the publisher remains indifferent to my query regarding the above question. I sent three emails to the customer support at HarperCollins Publishers last month. Nobody has replied to me so far. What's wrong with HarperCollins? Should I believe they keep publishing good dictionaries?

This is a good word-smiths tool, i use mine everyday and rarely has it let me down. It has a good selection of word and their meanings. One could go on and on but this dictionary is quite simply brilliant.

Quick delivery and well packaged. A little bit grubby at the top of the dictionary on the white pages, and tiny rip on the outer sleeve. Nice red ribbon. Almost like an encyclopeodia and so is heavy (7 1/4 kilos). Wanted another Collins as been very pleased with previous pocket one. I'm very happy with this useful tool and will refer to it often.

Whilst this product works perfectly on Windows 7 PC it does not work on either Kindle Fire or Android smart phone. This is recognized by Harper Collins on their website and it is a pity that this is not made clear on the Amazon website. See [...] Collins English Dictionary & Thesaurus

I have had a Collins dictionary and thesaurus for many years. But these large hard backed copies are for home use only. They are too heavy to carry around

My wife is a crossword buff and this provides a wealth of information over and above a standard dictionary - its by her side when she is "crosswording"
