Over 100 years after its first publication, the twelfth edition of this world-famous bestseller provides the most up-to-date picture of the English language today. The original 1911 edition, revolutionary at the time for its focus on current English and its use of illustrative examples, combined a succinct yet approachable style with coverage of everyday as well as specialist terms. This centenary edition continues this ground-breaking tradition, giving you rich authoritative coverage of English as it is used today.
This is a mobile dictionary with content from Oxford University Press and advanced search and language tools that have become the staple of quality language apps from MobiSystems.

Touchstone for the English language
No reader or writer can live without this book.
Tired of being asked for stars
I have given reviews and five stars but keep being asked to give five stars. I paid for this app to use a dictionary not to constantly be asked to promote it. I will not buy another dictionary until this is removed.
