Based on the critically acclaimed bestseller, The Canadian Oxford Dictionary, the COSD is completely up-to-date and provides straightforward answers to common spelling queries. Much easier to use than a conventional dictionary, the COSD simply lists names and words (including all regular and irregular plurals, verb forms, etc. ) in a single clear A-Z sequence. It includes all spellings used by Canadians but clearly indicates the preferred spelling, e.g. colour, color (use colour). Sound-alike words and names are glossed for clarity and the two-colour text is easy to use. Hundreds of entries on Canadian peoples, places, and Aboriginal groups end the confusion over Sidney, a town in B.C. and Sydney Mines, Cape Breton, for example. Usage notes are included where helpful. It gives preferred hyphenation for each word, making it indispensable for editors, typesetters, writers, students and anyone involved in desktop publishing. Archeology or archaeology? Kane, Paul (Irish-Canadian painter) or Kain, Karen (Canadian dancer)? Shakespearean or Shakesperian? An essential tool for anyone who needs to check their spelling quickly, and for all those who produce printed or word-processed text.

With detailed information on spelling, hyphenation, geographical names, etc., The Canadian Oxford Spelling Dictionary is the essential reference book for anyone wanting quick, authoritative answers to their spelling queries.
