- Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner's English Dictionary (5th edition, 2006), Editor-in-Chief John Sinclair, Glasgow, HarperCollins
This is a most valuable one-volume dictionary for non-native speakers of English, first published in 1987 as Cobuild English language dictionary. It is based on the Collins COBUILD Bank of English. The definitions are written largely as examples of how the language is used in practice, and there is much additional information of particular use to learners trying to learn to use the language idiomatically.
