Having missed the two previous editions of the Concise Oxford I thought it was time for a new one, particularly in the COD's centenary year (a very nice facsimile of the first edition has also just been published). This twelfth edition is a particularly successful one, in terms of design, paper and format and, strangely, I've consulted it more in the few weeks since I've had it than I looked at its predecessor over several years! It is still my preferred dictionary and this edition definitely does not disappoint. The Fowlers would be more than happy with it!

Bit disappointed. Concise seems to mean including a lot of slang and trade names at the expense of good English words. Won't be buying this one again.

I absolutely love the Concise Oxford English Dictionary.

And - I would never ever buy anything else for my home dictionary.

Take care
Dave

Everyone should have a dictionary and I know I could not be without mine after the last one fell to bits.

Everyone should know their own language. This is a classic reference for any UK home.

We got it for our son to use it when doing homework. Easy to use, lots of words.
