`Review from previous edition Visually different, in that there are now three columns per page rather than two, and headwords appear in a new, bolder, and somewhat larger font. The practical result is that one now finds words faster and with greater ease.'

`An enormous amount of lexicographic resourcefulness invested in the dictionary's macro- and microstructure, a very high degree of technological sophistication.'
