Shorter Oxford dictionary is brilliant,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shorter Oxford English Dictionary - Sixth Edition (Hardcover)
We are a crosssword loving family and these two volumes have already been well worth the money. Apart from being purely practical they are a never-ending source of interest about words and their origins. The entries are set out in a clear and easy to read fashion and the books themsleves are a delight to read.
