Product description

Review

"Chambers is the one I keep at my right hand"

"The Chambers Dictionary stands out like a baroque mansion in a city of faceless concrete"

"To look up a word in Chambers is to be able to unpack its meaning and also to marvel at its compactness . . . . Chambers is an open door to words at their wittiest, most rooted, most revealing, and most powerful"

"This fossicking for undiscovered jewels is, of course, one of the chief pleasures of a dictionary . . . A page a day keeps the doddypolls at bay "

"Chambers is the kind of dictionary with which people who like to play with words begin to feel an affinity. Its vocabulary is so vast and variegated that crossword fans find it a valuable resource."

"We shall not rest until every Independent reader is saying to him or herself, 'I wonder what 'humdudgeon' means. I must just go and look it up.'"

"Scrabble players have traditionally used The Chambers Dictionary . . . . Never has cursing been so creative"

"Chambers is the best one-volume dictionary from the wrong side of the Atlantic"

"authority and reliability"

'The 12th edition of The Chambers Dictionary is the most useful and diverting single-volume work-hoard available. It's somehow good to know that a zizel is a chipmunk'
