Shorter Oxford English Dictionary
I recently purchased many books including the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (a heavy
2 volume set), from www.amazon.com. I am immeasurably pleased with the CD
that accompanied these books; it includes the words, definitions, and
audio files with word pronunciations. When looking up words such as dissolute, raffish, licentious, lubricious, rakish, and profligate,
it is a great pleasure to have the exact definition close at hand,
whether I am at my office with the hefty printed volumes, or at my
computer, dissipated but assiduous.
