Abstract:

"The Canadian Oxford Dictionary serves Canadians like no other dictionary, answering their basic questions about the language by giving them advice on Canadian spelling and usage, and defining more Canadian words and senses (almost 2,000) than any other dictionary. 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." "The dictionary is exceptionally reliable in its description of Canadian English because it is based on thorough research into the language. Favoured Canadian pronunciations have been determined by surveying a nationwide group of respondents." "An added feature of this dictionary is its encyclopedic element. It includes short biographies of over 800 Canadians and 5,000 individuals and mythical figures of international significance, and almost 6,000 place names, more than 1,200 of them Canadian."--Jacket.
