5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential, Sept. 24 2008
By 
Scott "word doctor" (Edmonton, AB Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Canadian Oxford Dictionary (Hardcover)
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 So far, so good..., Nov. 9 2012
By 
Elise (Winnipeg MB) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Canadian Oxford Dictionary (Hardcover)
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.

I had to buy this for class as I am studying ling/translation and though I used to fully rely on online sources, this one is great. I use it all the time. Great, complete resource for Canadian spelling that is not always easy to find or confirm elsewhere.
