Book Description

Oct 1986 0582893011 978-0582893016
Designed as an A-Z source of inspiration to crossword puzzlers and other word-game enthusiasts, this dictionary offers ways into the clue, gives quick signposts and spurs to further thought rather then actually providing full answers. It is the result of the compiler's analysis over 25 years of some 300,000 crossword clues. It contains over 15,000 headwords and over 175,000 entries plus synonyms, associated word puns and other play on words. There is also cross-referencing and general advice on solving cryptic clues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Longman Crossword Solver's Dictionary 21 May 2009
Delighted with the Longman Crossword Solver's Dictionary. I have tried in the past to replace my old copy, which is only fit for the bin, without success until I approached Amazon. I was told it was used but satisfactory and was really pleased with the excellent condition of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Longman Crossword Solver's Dictionary 3 Mar 2013
By Setter
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For crossword enthusiasts, this is a perenial favourite, that doesn't go out of date. Clear print and comprehensive coverage. Only downside is the book's ability to stand up to a lot of thumbing, over time.
