The dictionary is obviously well-used but that is to be expected. I really like that every word is gien the explanation of where it originates. This is a delightful addition. Thank you.

Whilst described as "Pocket" I would challenge anyone to find a large enough pocket in their regular clothes to put it in - seven and a half by two and a half by five (inches) is somewhat OTT - I couldn't find the words to describe this!!

I can tell you now that this book is a gem. It has helped me for years on end with academic research and I always find the word I'm looking for. The explanations in the book are detailed, without using words which are over-complicated. It also says briefly where the word originated from and gives deriveatives. Very impressive for a smaller dictionary.

I'm a man and therefore have big manly pockets, but this doesn't fit into any of my pockets. It's the size of a handbag, maybe. It would be alright sitting on your desk, but not in your pocket. I have to carry this in my underwear.

if you are looking for a small dictionary to pop in your pocket this is not the one. Its more handbag or desk sized.

Any dictionary is going to be a compromise between depth of definitions and how concise it is ... But if it defines itself as 'pocket' then it should live down to that size. There are other words to define this: Small or Portable - But 'Pocket' it ain't. That said, if you want a dictionary to sit in your desk drawer this could be the one for you.

Bought this for my 11yr old daughter for starting year 7 at school , larger than i imagined as it a pocket size, but my daughter has used it so much already so would recomend this product highly.
