Just a few points:
This dictionary is intuitive, informative and aesthetically appealing.
Not only are the lexical entries themselves of a praiseworthy degree of clarity, the grammatical tables, diagrams and explanations to the front and back of the book are well placed and a ready reference.
I have used it for some years now and it has certainly grown on me.
My only reservations about this dictionary are:
1) It is weak on archaic words, the usage for which I use dictionaries most of all. For this, I supplement my dictionary needs with the much older "New Standard Illustrated Dictionary and Encyclopædia (Williams, A.M, ed, Odhams Press, undated (!)).
2) The phonetic symbols at the front are handy, but not always used, even in other Oxford dictionaries. However, it is naturally important that the phonetic symbols themselves are retained. This isn't actually a criticism of the dictionary itself, but rather a plea for inter-publishing house consistency.
3) In the preface, the term 'polysemous' is used. This word is not found in the dictionary itself!
Despite these minor reservations, this dictionary is recommended, especially if you are coming to English as a second language (which isn't the case for myself). It has been well worth the money.
