Advanced Learner's Dictionary (English) 8th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.527

Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary is the biggest English language dictionary. It is aimed at non-native speakers, and is published by the Oxford University Press. It has been used by approximately 35 million readers all over the world.

The first edition of this dictionary was published in 1948. The current edition is the eighth edition. Apart from being available in printed form, the latest edition is also available in the form of a CD-ROM.

The latest edition covers a lot more ground than its predecessors. It has a total of 184,500 words, meanings, and phrases. It has also introduced a thousand new words. Around 700 global words that are now considered a part of English are also included. An added advantage is that about 3000 special words or key words are highlighted and these include some of the most useful words, and their meanings.

There is a new interactive section that includes several vocabulary banks corresponding to a variety of topics. Numerous dictation and language exercises are also provided.

The Oxford Writing Tutor and the Oxford iWriter (provided on the CD-ROM) are a couple of highlights of the latest edition. They are particularly helpful in preparing presentations and essays as well as in honing writing skills.

Some of the other improved elements of the new edition include better look-up methods for entries, in-depth etymological information, and a visual vocabulary builder in colour.

A Classic

I've used the OALD ever since I can remember using dictionaries. It is perhaps the single most resourceful book you will ever own. I lost my copy while moving houses a few months back, hence the new copy.

This edition has everything that a learner of English might need, irrespective of her/his level, really. The Oxford 3000 is a wonderful tool for beginners. The detailed yet concise 'how-to-write' guides at the back cover everything from CVs and presentations to reviews and summaries. Not a big fan of CDs, but it's a value-added for those of you who care.

Verdict: If you want a dictionary...

Go ahead buy it ...you wont regret

As usual , on-time delivery by flip kart. Also loved the complimentary book mark . Oxford advanced dictionary managed to impress me with its buoyancy and content . Ideal for people who are willing to learn the usage of the word as it has many sentences as examples given along . It provides added advantage of learning synonyms of the word too. So advice to everyone , go ahead buy this and improve your lexicon .

One of the best British English Dictionary

This is one of the best British English Dictionary available in India. However, the words have been given with American pronunciation also. First of all, we should learn the pronunciation of the vowel and the consonants which have been given in the last page of the book (Earlier, it was just back of the front page). Try to learn those and pronounce the words in the same fashion. We would never get the same accent as a British but, we would know the correct pronunciation. Furthermore, the meaning of the words, synonyms, the use in sentence, everything is given, which is very useful to all.... ()

Later, I have gifted to minimum 10 people. Do have this book.
