Description: Never before has Canadian English been so accurately and comprehensively described as in The Canadian Oxford Dictionary. Here are 130,000 definitions, including over 2,000 distinctly Canadian words and meanings, covering every region of the country. Each of these entries is exceptionally reliable, the result of thorough research into databases of over 20 million words from more than 8,000 Canadian sources, plus an additional 20 million words from other English sources. Oxford's thorough research has ensured that new words that have recently appeared are well represented. An added feature of this dictionary is its encyclopedic element. It includes short biographies of over 800 Canadians, such as Elvis Stojko, Celine Dion and Lester B. Pearson, as well as entries on 5,000 individuals and mythical figures, and almost 6,000 place names, more than 1,200 of them Canadian. Geographics entries not only explain the origin of the place name, but also include the population based on the 1996 census.

With the publication of The Canadian Oxford Dictionary, Oxford University, Press adds another work to its highly respected range of dictionaries, and Canadians finally have a dictionary that truly reflects their nation.
