Best little dictionary in this price range 5. April 2004
Von Traveler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The "Pocket Oxford English Dictionary" is just about the best dictionary you can get for this type and in this price range.
The physical size of the dictionary is accessible and handy - sort of like your own word leatherman tool. The text is easy to read with each entry in bold. The quality of the paper is quite good and should withstand heavy use. This is also a hardcover which makes it more even more sturdy. And the defintions are pretty much current and up-to-date. In sum, it's about the best portable dictionary you can get.
About the only quibble is that this edition has only 120,000 defintions. However, this is just the constraint of the size and purpose of the dictionary. If they had made it longer you wouldn't have the portable size.

Hardback is Misleading 22. Juli 2008
Von Careful Buyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this dictionary from Oxford's voluminous line because it was a good price for a hardback cover, which I felt would be more durable. While the cover may be more durable, the binding is cheap glue rather than a more reinforced binding that usually comes with a hardback. This weak binding becomes a particular problem because the book is very thick and requires the reader to force it open widely to be able to read at the inside margins of the pages. I have only had the book for a few months, but it does not seem as though the binding will last very long.

Something old, something new... 6. Juni 2005
Von Tim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the dictionary I grew up with. For more years than I can remember, POD stands for an authoritative yet handy source of guidance for the English language. I still keep an old edition, which was published long before the Soviet Union collapsed.

I bought this latest edition out of curiosity. This new edition obviously bears a modern look. Its definitions are concise, clear, and unequivocal. Unlike the Merrian-Webster series, which sometimes substitute a synonym for a definition, this dictionary defines every single word in such an accessible way that the probability for confusion is largely minimised.

However, the apparent dismissal of IPA and the adoption of a brand-new system of pronunciation symbols have caused some confusion. Having been used to the IPA and the system of M-Webster, I don't think I need to bother to learn a third respelling system.

Well, it had to happen.... 30. September 2010
Von Candide13 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Twenty years ago I bought this book (7th edition) when I arrived as a foreign exchange student to study in the US.
I vividly remember the joy of finding a bounty of precise and clear definitions in this
fantastic book. I even copied a number of them out by hand and pinned them up on wardrobe, and I was a science major!
For example, I remembered the definition of "concise: "brief but comprehensive in expression". How could
you say it any better.

Well twenty years later, I proudly buy the current edition for my young son, hoping to pass on this joy.
And boy, did they dumb everything down into oblivion. This stinker of a dictionary is now full
of trivialities and consciously low-brow wordings. The new entry for "concise"? It says "using few words".

The only reason I give it two stars instead of one is that none of the other dictionaries I looked at were any better; seems
to be a lost cause.

Concise, simple, easy and clear to understand 13. August 2010
Von Nuknuk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Be aware that this dictionary has more than a thousand pages. It is thick and is not a pocket size. The definitions are one the most concise, simple, easy and clear to understand of the many dictionaries I have owned. It also gives you some examples of sentence usage for difficult or confusing words. Tells you the origin as Latin, Old Eng., etc. This has to be my favorite handy dictionary.

I ordered mine used and I got the 2005 tenth edition.
