Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever As an English literature major, I have used many different dictionaries but have never found anything that could top this book. Recommended to me by my word-suavy aunt, this dictionary is informative and easy to navigate. Distinctly Canadian, I would recommend this dictionary to everyone (including my 8 year old brother.) It's the best Canadian dictionary you could ask for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cdn Reference for Spelling and More I think this is one of the best references around - rather than relying on British or American standards of spelling and definitions, this is a quintessentially Canadian dictionary. Besides a respectable number of entries (140,000+), this dictionary is supplemented by a number of photographs and entries which are almost encyclopaedic- one source for recent and not so recent Canadian lore. It is especially useful since many Canadian personalities and cultural quirks can be found in this single reference. Alternative quality English dictionaries are: Oxford Cdn Dictionary ISBN 019541120X and Gage Canadian Dictionary ISBN 0771573995
