Amazon Review

It's official! The word techie--a devotee of or expert in (some aspect of) technology--has made it into the Chambers Dictionary. And there are a slew of other net-specific words too, including netiquette, browsing, applet, span, cybersex and cybercafé. It just goes to show how the world of computing and electronic communications has advanced and changed our world. Of course, there are also those other little things that have become part of our lives: Prozac, sound bite, cellulite... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Chambers is my dictionary of choice and always has been, because its

practice is to detail a word's etymology with clarity, brevity and

exactness, so that to look up a word in Chambers is to be able to

unpack its meaning and also to marvel at its compactness... Chambers is

an open door to words at their wittiest, most rooted, most reavealing

and most powerful.

(Ali Smith)

It's good to see that the latest, 11th, edition of Chambers Dictionary has lost none of its wit. (Mark Sanderson, Literary Life, Telegraph.co.uk)

It's official! The credit crunch has finally found its way into the hallowed columns of this iconic work of reference...

Hats off, incidentally, to the editor who archly defines 'comfort food' as 'mood-enhancing food that meets the approval of one's taste buds but not of one's doctor'.

(Daily Echo)

Chambers is the one I keep at my right hand (Philip Pullman: how I chose my top 40, 'The Times') --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
