Description:
First published in 1872, The Chambers Dictionary contains more words, phrases and meanings than any other single-volume English dictionary. Yet it remains lighter and easier to hold, and now has an even more durable jacket so that it will be a beautiful hardback reference for many years to come. This 13th edition retains the much-loved features of The Chambers Dictionary, including the unique, quirky definitions.

There are over 1,000 new words and meanings, and there is also a brand new two-colour Word Lover's Ramble, showing how English words and definitions have changed over the history of The Chambers Dictionary. The Chambers Dictionary is now the UK's number 1 selling hardback dictionary. It is regarded as the dictionary of choice for crossword setters and solvers, and is popular with players of word games such as Scrabble® and Words With Friends®.

It is famous for its Scottish heritage, its thorough coverage of obscure words, and its unique personality that comes across in a definition style that is both useful and witty.
