    The best English dictionary I ve read Period I was surprised by quite a few entries words have interesting histories, don t they If you are into linguistics or you wish to become a wordsmith of the first rank, this is a must.

    Quite simply the most entertaining dictionary you will ever come across Packed with gems of quotations and learned etymology but with the lightest of touches and some quite ribald humour.
