An expanded and largely rewritten edition of Oxford's contemporary English dictionary, this book is 20% larger than the previous edition and contains 120,000 entries with 190,000 definitions. This is the thumb-indexed edition. New words include cashpoint, dosh, glasnost, jojoba, ozone-friendly and sick building syndrome. The definitions attempt to be clear and concise, with special symbols and abbreviations kept to a minimum. The treatment of sensitive and controversial vocabulary has been extensively reworked and increased, as has the scientific and technical vocabulary. Pronunciations are given in the standard International Phonetic Alphabet.
