    Maybe Merriam-Webster-it has 700 illustrations, 225000 "clear and precise" definitions....
    Search amazon.com for "dictionary" and you'll find a bunch of customer-rated dictionaries.
    Which English would you prefer-AE, CE, or BE or all?

    It seems, Merriam -Webster has a very strange unconventional transcription, which I dislike. Longman's is better, to my mind.

    I'm very hapy with your changing and correction.

    I prefer (CE) ... which you mean Canadian English?
