Product description

Review

“wonderful coverage of current English … the layout is appealing to the read”
reader review of CED 9th edition on amazon.co.uk

“The best single-volume English dictionary … the typefaces used are the most attractive of any dictionary”
reader review of CED 9th edition on amazon.co.uk

“I find Collins English Dictionary invaluable because is it an encyclopaedia as well a dictionary, and it stands up to really intensive use.”
John Grant, Crossword Editor, The Times

“The dictionary I reach for first …”
Roger Cooper, Sunday Telegraph

“It has offered to a current generation of students the possibility that the study of language might be exciting, as it was to Dr. Johnson. In short, I think it’s brilliant.”
Professor B A Harris, University of Dublin

“I spend my working life with the Collins dictionary permanently open. It is, in its way, a masterpiece. On New Scientist it is also a bible; we take all our spellings from it (with a few exceptions) … The dictionary has managed to take advances in science in its stride.”
Peter Wrobel, New Scientist

“I have never known a dictionary with such scope. The biographical entries are particularly useful. I would not be without it for anything.”
Professor John Carey, Merton College, Oxford

“The inclusion of so many proper names and colloquialisms is especially valuable.”
Penelope Lively

“It is a stupendous achievement … the best and sanest interpretative dictionary I have ever seen.”
Auberon Waugh, The Spectator
