    Welcome to the forums.

    For online dictionaries, this is a good place to start: OneLook Dictionary Search

    Re: English Dictionary

    Thank you, but online dictionaries are not what I am looking for.

    I might purchase The New Oxford American Dictionary. It looks very good.

    Re: English Dictionary

    I ran into Collins Cobuild-resource Pack on CD-Rom. Does anyone have opinion of this?

    At least it sounds great:

    • Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner's English Dictionary.
    • Collins COBUILD Guide to English Usage.
    • Collins COBUILD English Grammar.
    • Thesaurus containing over 130,000 synonyms.
    • Quickly retrieve examples of the use of words in real English text, written and spoken from the Word Bank of 5 million words of authentic text samples.
