5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential Sept. 24 2008
By Scott
As a freelance writer and editor, I find it hard to believe that I ever got along without this dictionary. Buy it, add the Chicago Manual of Style and The Canadian Style, and you've got an answer to almost any spelling or style question. Oh, and buy The Elements of Style if you want to know how to write.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oxford Canadian Dictionary Jan. 12 2012
Just as expected-no surprises.The backs are a bit flimsy but
the price is very good. The paper is a bit thin but this makes
for a compact volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good... Nov. 9 2012
By Elise
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I needed a dictionary with a very large number of words, as I already know more words than the average dictionary. This dictionary promises 300,000 words, and so far almost every word I've looked up was in it. However, it includes words that I don't think belong in a dictionary, such as place names and extremely localised slangs such as "plus-15" which you'll never use outside Calgary AB. So I think the 300,000 statistic is inflated, and that annoys me. But as long as I don't start finding lots of words that aren't in it, I'm ok with it. And I don't have a better one to recommend, so yes, if you need a dictionary with many words, this one is highly adequate.

4.0 out of 5 stars My New Dictionary June 1 2014
By Sparkle
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love words and was excited when I received my new dictionary. It was larger than I thought it would be but not overly so. The words are easy to find, the definitions are understandable, and the soft cover allows it to open easy. I'm getting the Thesaurus to match.
