From Library Journal
Canadian EnglishAhistorically overwhelmed by British and American linguistic influencesAcontains comparatively few terms unique to Canada. It comes as no surprise, then, that only about 2000 of the 130,000 entries in the this title are actually Canadianisms (e.g., "fishway," "outport," "pure laine," "riding," and "shit distributor"). Aimed at adults and older students, the Canadian Oxford also indicates preferred Canadian pronunciation and spellings; most of the rest of the lexical text, however, adheres closely to that found in the Concise Oxford Dictionary (1995. 9th ed.). The dictionary also includes brief entries for some 800 prominent Canadians and 1200 Canadian places, both useful encyclopedic features.

Book Description
Thumb-indexed edition

A hundred years of experience in dictionary publishing lies behind this edition of the famous Cassell's French Dictionary. After more than thirty impressions of the previous edition this entirely new dictionary has been compiled by a team of eminent linguists. Reviewing the new dictionary The Times Educational Supplement said: "One handles this dictionary with the same pleasure that a craftsman feels when he finds that a tool, dulled and blunted by long use and passage of time, has come back sharpened and polished, refurbished and fit once more for long years of useful service. Everyone has his testing-points for a dictionary and the present reviewer, after submitting this one to the ordeal, awarded it a tentative full marks. Its minor defects pale into insignificance before the...
