    Hope you don't mind my corrections.
    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?

    There's a selection of suggestions here: http://www.usingenglish.com/books/dictionary.html
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    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?
