About the Author:


About the Editor:
Frank Abate is a Connecticut-based lexicographer whose credits include more than 20 different dictionaries. Recently, he was Managing Editor for The Oxford Desk Dictionary, American Edition, and served as special consultant for U.S. usage on The Concise Oxford Dictionary, Ninth Edition.

From Library Journal:

Marry edited versions of the venerable Concise Oxford Dictionary (Oxford Univ., 1990. 8th ed.) and The Oxford Thesaurus: American Edition (LJ 11/1/92), and you have this new Oxford dictionary. A solid production containing more than 100,000 succinct entries and 300,000 undiscriminated synonyms in a single alphabet, it is clear, authoritative, and up-to-date. For instance, wuss and wussy are here, labeled "colloq." Some definitions include brief demonstrations of how the word or sense is used in context, but there are no illustrations. The dictionary concludes with 16 appendixes (e.g., a list of proverbs, the books of the Bible, and U.S. presidents). Librarians should be aware that, as the title page indicates, it is also published as The Reader's Digest Oxford Complete Wordfinder. An agreeable work for the home consumer but, as a condensed version of two Oxford classics, hardly a necessary acquisition for most libraries.?Ken Kister, "Kister's Best Encyclopedias," Tampa, Fla.
