This item was difficult to rate because I couldn't make separate reviews for these two editions. The paperback edition I simply adore, an excellent source for advanced learners in many respects, including neatness of presentation, user-friendliness and etc. On the other hand, I am very disappointed by the kindle edition because it does not recognise different forms of words. For example, if you press a word which has the form of a participle, let's say 'explaining', it won't find it in the dictionary, but you will have to type it in its basic form to get the meaning. To be forced to do this is time-consuming and disruptive to my reading. And on top of all that, the font is partly so light that it puts a strain on your eyes.

This dictionary deserves a much better kindle edition than it has been given.

It's useless as Kindle standard dictionary. It doesn't support inflections, so if you press and hold almost any verb you'll not see definition of it.

Great reference in hard cover and paper back. Abysmal reference in kindle. When you type in a world, it appears in a truncated form on the top left corner of screen. I will never recommend this valuable dictionary in its kindle format.

Fantastic dictionary. Very useful for linguistics/uni study. It contains all types of the word including grammar labels and additional uses.

I waited for years to get hold of the 8th edition
and I can say it was worth it. Once more, research
and good ideas, as the Writing tutor pages, do more
for the learner than any of its would-be competitors.

The paper is of excellent quality and extra thin, which
makes it possible for the 1796 pages (plus extras)to
be portable, with all its 186,500 words! Beat that!

Key words are typed in slightly bigger font and marked
with a key, as is relevant academic Enlgish words, with
AW. Several words are listed with their synonyms and
their differences in usage explained and contrasted.
In addition, collocation boxes teach you how to use
the words in natural native-like ways.

It is highly recommended to students and teachers, like me,
who either need or love to continue progressing in
their knowledge of English.

The book itself is highly readable. it reads like a little english encyclopedia!

Dual-Tone Printing is top of the line, way better than Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.

It is a true dictionary for learners, as for almost every word and phrase there is a sentense showing u how to use it. This dictionary covers both british english and american english too!

Excellent!

This is a great source for advanced english learners, and with the new feature iWriter, it's easy to learn how to write a good essay.

The first oxford dictionary that I bought before this one was 2000 edition and now that I have bought this particular one has added many new features,words and visual ilustrations which are all on its accompanying CD-ROM. This dictionary supplements the rest of all my new and old ones and has a lot to offer to any English learner out there.
