"Oxford's new rapid-access page designs set most words as entries in their own right to avoid long paragraphs that hide related words.

Jargon has been translated into plain English, and confusing abbreviations simplified or avoided." "Every definition is based on wide scrutiny of real evidence, drawn from millions of unique citations collected by The Oxford World Reading Program. In addition, Oxford lexicographers have access to a 100-million-word corpus, with rapid computer search-and-analysis techniques providing answers to the most complex language queries." "For greater clarity, the most important meaning of each word is placed first. This is followed by derived senses, technical senses, slang, idioms, and historical or obsolete senses. To help users distinguish between correct and incorrect grammar and usage, reliable guidance is provided by Language in Use panels on larger dictionaries and concise in-text notes in smaller ones."--BOOK JACKET
