    About Longman Advanced Dictionary 5th Edition

    Hello; looking up the word zip, I noticed that Longman shows more definitions than other dictionaries, as Oxford.Does it happen because Longman is outdated, or are the others just lacking definitions?

    It depends which Oxford dictionary you are looking at. The OED is still the benchmark for dictionaries in the UK, and carries more words than most if not all.

    I deleted the other questions because they may infringe copyright, which is dealt with very strictly where the site is hosted.
