Description
What makes Oxford dictionaries and thesauruses unique?
Oxford's reputation as the world's leading dictionary-maker is founded on the Oxford English Dictionary (the OED), 'the greatest dictionary in any language'. It is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over half a million words, covering both current and historical usage. Oxford extends the same expertise to all its other dictionaries and thesauruses, making them the most authoritative in the world.
Tracking the Language
Oxford lexicographers look at the evidence of the living language and analyse how it is changing. Oxford has the largest language research programme in the world, a programme that includes the Oxford English Corpus, a huge databank containing hundreds of millions of words of text representing every type of writing and speech.
Why choose an Oxford Dictionary, Thesaurus, and wordpower Guide?
Oxford's ongoing investment into language development gives you the guarantee you need that Oxford Dictionary and Thesauruses are thoroughly researched and up to date. They have been designed for ease of use: the dictionary and the thesaurus text appear on the same page, the thesaurus entries are arranged in A to Z format so you go straight to the word you need, and lists of words within entries are organized with the most useful words given first.
I know what a dictionary is for, but why do I need a thesaurus?
A thesaurus gives you lists of alternative words that you can use instead of other words. Using a thesaurus brings your language to life. It makes your writing more effective and also more interesting because it helps you to choose the right word for every occasion, and gives you new alternatives for tired old words.
When will I use an Oxford Dictionary and thesaurus?
Writing essays and dissertations at college or university; preparing reports and office memos; helping your children with homework; writing a poem, story, or letter—an Oxford thesaurus is an invaluable help at these times—and excellent for word games as well.
What is a Wordpower Guide?
Oxford Dictionary and Thesauruses offer tremendous value for money. The unique Wordpower Guide is an extra section packed with information to widen your vocabulary, to improve your writing and speaking skills, or simply to have fun browsing the endless richness of the English language.
