About the Author
Through a collaborative initiative, Collins COBUILD and National Geographic Learning are co-publishing a dynamic new line of learners' dictionaries offering unparalleled pedagogy and learners resources. The first Collins COBUILD dictionary was published in 1987, thanks in part to John Sinclair, one of the very first modern corpus linguists who personally oversaw the creation of the Bank of English(TM). Every COBUILD dictionary is based on the Bank of English(TM), a huge electronic database of both written and spoken language, which today contains over 650 million words.

The 3rd edition of 2001 introduced a digital version on CD-ROM included with the book on paper. That 1st digital version apparently had more examples than the latter ones (Google: Review of the Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner's English Dictionary). The equivalent for buffs of American English is titled Collins COBUILD Advanced Dictionary of American English.
