This is a brand new edition of the smallest dictionary in Oxford's core range of dictionaries. The Oxford English Minidictionary is the ideal quick-reference tool. It is small and portable - slipping easily into a bag or briefcase. It is affordable and robust - its flexicover means that it resists wearing out, even though it is used all the time.
This new edition of the Minidictionary is based on the latest research from the Oxford English Corpus: entries give the most common meanings first, making them more accessible and easy to understand than ever before, and definitions for core, topical, and technical vocabulary are informed by the most frequent 5,000 words in the Corpus. A brand-new design makes the dictionary easier to read and for you to find what you are looking for. The Oxford English Minidictionary has all the everyday words you need; there are over 90,000 words, phrases, and definitions packed between its covers. The new edition also features a 16-page centre supplement that provides quick-reference language tips (such as hints on remembering the correct spellings of commonly misspelled words), and handy word lists for word-games and puzzles.
