The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary contains 600,000 definitions, more than a third of the entries found in the Oxford English Dictionary – the ‘ultimate authority on the English language' – in just one tenth of its size. All the vocabulary current in general English worldwide from 1700 (as well as in earlier major works such as the Bible and Shakespeare) to the present day is presented in its two handsome volumes. The Shorter's 85,000 historical and literary quotations are a unique feature, illustrating how the language has been used by writers through the centuries. The acclaimed Shorter Oxford English Dictionary has undergone a major programme of updating and improvement since the last edition in 2002, ensuring that it remains the best of its kind. 2,500 new words, many never published in any other dictionary New introductory essay by language guru David Crystal More than 1,000 new illustrative quotations from writers throughout the English-speaking world Definitions reviewed for currency and clarity An improved clear and fresh design
