When it comes to learning proper English, whether British or American, the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary remains a step ahead of the competition. I really recommend going with the hardcover version, as one of my previous OALD paperbacks fell apart within a year. I particularly like the fact that it's paperback and very easy to open and fold back if needed.

Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary offers much more than just the . OXFORD ADVANCED LEARNER'S DICTIONARY Albert Sydney Hornby.

Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary offers much more than just the meanings of words. With its pictorial representations (wherever possible) and numerous examples for each word/phrase/idiom, it provides a thorough understanding of the word in the most easy manner. In a week or two I need to use it's CD-ROM, that is, on the pronunciation and phonetic symbols for my powerpoint presentations in the four classes of those part-time post bachelor students studying for the education diploma in a three-semester syllabus at NPRU. In a word, use it and you'd love it!.

What does Compass mean in the given title? Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary with Compass CD-ROM

What does Compass mean in the given title? Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary with Compass CD-ROM. The word "Compass" is the title of the CD-ROM, and to me that word seems to have been chosen as the title because it does what a compass does: It points learners in the direction of what they need/want to know.

No other book on my bookshelf is more worn out. I use it all the time. When I started to study English I used to use an English / Portuguese (my first language) dictionary but I could only actually improve my English when I started using the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary.
The dictionary has lots of pictures (over 1700) for words that can be explained but for which a picture is much more effective like "hinge". The words have a pronunciation guide with a mark (') showing the main stress. There are many useful appendixes like irregular verbs conjugation, usage of numbers, punctuation, family relationships and a few colorful maps.
Over 220 usage notes clarify the subtle differences among words such as dealer trader and merchant. Although it's mainly a British English dictionary the differences in spelling, use or pronunciation between American English and British English are stressed.
By far the most interesting feature is the extremely reduced defining vocabulary constituted of 3500 words. The great majority of definitions are written using that reduced defining vocabulary. This simplifies the definitions and it's a great starting vocabulary for the beginners. The use of such a small defining vocabulary rules out the use of this dictionary as a thesaurus but the advantages compensate this drawback.
My copy is a paper back that has been reinforced with adhesive tape. This makes the dictionary lighter and handy. I used to put it on my back pack and take it to all my classes when I started college in USA.
The drawbacks are the need of an additional thesaurus and the fact that the entries are not syllabified. Nevertheless I would give it 10 stars if I could.

When it comes to learning proper English, whether British or American, the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary remains a step ahead of the competition. I owned 2 prior editions of the OALD, and both times thought it could not have been possibly improved. I was wrong. The 7th edition is better and more useful than ever before. I really recommend going with the hardcover version, as one of my previous OALD paperbacks fell apart within a year.
There is only one serious gripe that I have with this book. The publisher has removed the venerable Oxford University Coat of Arms from the covers of the dictionary. It was a famous and easily identifiable seal imprinted on all Oxford Dictionaries, and standing for their legendary lexicographic quality. The motto "Dominus Illuminatio Mea" (The Lord is My Light) paid tribute to the origins of Oxford University. As it appears, the publishers have become so neutered as to give in to the pressures of "political sensitivity". I am sure the Oxford University Press can come up with all sorts of feeble and catatonic explanations in defence of their move, but the lost respect is hard to regain.

PERFECT TRANSACTION!!! It IS brand new. Arrived in less than one week. My son bought this book plus CD for $15 from bellwetherbooks which we installed on my computer as well as his laptop. I ordered this same book at a much lower price of $4.00 without the CD. I love this dictionary. I particularly like the fact that it's paperback and very easy to open and fold back if needed. I keep it right on the coffee table in the living room. OK O'Reilly, I'm ready for any word you come up with!

The dictionary is excellent. I bought a Longman dictionary earlier this year. Though excellent, it didn't have enough words for my daily need. This Oxford has more than enough words so far and the explaination for each words is very ealy to understood.

The included CD software doesn't run at all. And I sent an email to tech support. So far it may have passed one month. Never hear anything back.

I volunteer teach in the library Literacy Program and bought this book for my student from Fiji. She loves it and carries it with her all the time. Although it's geared for advanced learners, my student is just reading English at about 4th grade level and finds this book very helpful. She uses it to look up words she doesn't understand and to learn synonyms and antonyms. She will still be using this book ten years from now when she's reading English at college level.
is good
