  • Lacks word found in the Shorter Oxford version

    By Jbredmo
    Why pay more for less? I regret upgrading. The word that provoked this review is “conium”, the genus of the poison hemlock. It is found in the shorter version. John

    Not so bad but it’s still good
  • Too much irrelevance

    By Bk bookworm
    The site offers useful advice about meaning and spelling, to say nothing about word origins. But the Notifications are totally worthless.
  • Great

    The best there is, keeps getting improved.
  • not the best

    By ixirene
    The word of the day is usually pointless- words like father and eyelid. Approximately half the time I look up at work the dictionary does not include it. Takes a long time to open sometimes. Otherwise, it’s an OK Choice for a Dictionary.
  • Disappointed

    By son-oflaw
    Poor, mist of the words of the day are appropriate for age 5-10 at best,, or non-words like “girl guides association” which may be the name of an obscure organization that few adults would have exposure to. OED, You can do better than this.
  • Bugs
