Since it first appeared in 1998, The Canadian Oxford Dictionary has established a new authoritative standard. It answers basic questions about the language by giving advice on Canadian spelling and usage, and defining more Canadian words and senses (almost 2,000) than any other dictionary. The definitions, worded for ease of comprehension, are presented within entries in order of their familiarity or frequency in Canadian usage, making the dictionary easy to consult. An added feature is its encyclopedic element. It includes short biographies of over 800 Canadians and 5,000 indiviuals and mythical figures of international significance, and almost 6,000 place names, more than 1,200 of them Canadian.
