Item Description...
With its portable format, this new, fully revised, edition of the Oxford Color Dictionary is an excellent all-purpose resource. It covers over 85,000 words, phrases, and definitions and is suitable for everyone, even elementary school students.
The emphasis is on clarity and accessibility, and it boasts a whole new design. With all headwords, inflections, derivatives, and phrases in color, it is very easy to find the information you need quickly and easily. Definitions are written in clear, simple terms, avoiding challenging vocabulary. Extra help is provided in the form of pronunciation guides for difficult words; a simple respelling system; in-text notes that give guidance on spelling, usage, and selected word origins; and boxes that cover general grammar points, such as pronunciation, word building, and pronouns.
Whether perusing the text to double-check a word's spelling or using the volume to learn for the first time a word's definition, this handy, colorful dictionary is the perfect choice for all ages.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly readable and usable dictionary  Mar 25, 2007
The Oxford Color Dictionary scores high on readability and usability. Word entries are bold and in blue, with no dots, dashes or spaces between the syllables. I bought it for my 5th grader who was having trouble scanning our huge unabridged dictionary and was thwarted by the syllable indicators, latin, and obscure abbreviations. Plus, the definitions are clear, if a little simple.

My test for whether the dictionaries I reviewed were at the right level was for the mathematical terms "mean" and "median." This dictionary had useful definitions for both.

The downside, for us, is the British-English spelling of words (like "favour"). US spellings are listed in parentheses inside the definitions of the British spellings. Not perfect for the spelling-challenged.
