I have also read some of the Chambers dictionary, and was dissapointed with some of the americanism in this book. The Oxford Dictionary is consise and clear in its layout, and a throughly good reference book. My knowledge of the english language has increased tenfold - highly recommended.
est in Esperanto and how it was developed I have long been fascinated to know where our language came from and how it has developed. Just what I wanted.
