"We can all write and speak a bit more confidently with the arrival of The Canadian Oxford Dictionary lobe and Mail

"It is a treat to find the way we speak validated in a thick, stylish, authoritative volume which can take its place on the bookshelf with other great dictionaries....On the evidence of a week's serious browsing, the Canadian Oxford earns an A." Winnipeg Free Press

"There are 35 dictionaries on my bookshelf; this one will be on my desk." New Brunswick Reader

Format: Hardcover
The Canadian Oxford Dictionary was written by five Canadian lexicographers and originally published in June 1998. Wordsmiths regard this work as the Cadillac of Canadian dictionaries and the foremost authority on current Canadian English. It encompasses 130,000 entries, including 2,000 Canadian words, 500 Canadian regionalisms, 1,200 Canadian place names, 800 Canadian biographies and 300 Aboriginal people and cultural entries.
The book is well bound, with an Oxford blue hardcover made of a synthetic material called Kivar 5 which has gold foil stamping, called blocking, emblazoned on the spine and is protected by an attractive removable dust cover. The paper is high quality 30-lb lightweight bone white stock called Rampart Opaque. This type of paper allows the dark black text done in Swift font to be more legible and pleasing to the eye. The pages are thumb indexed and have attractive blue speckling on the outside edges.
This dictionary is of such a high quality both in content and construction, that it should be considered a mandatory reference book in every Canadian home, classroom, library and office.
Two other fine Canadian dictionaries are the:
IP Nelson; and
Gage.
