The Oxford Dictionary of Idioms - Judith Siefring
Did you know that 'flavor of the month' originated in a marketing campaign in American ice-cream parlors in the 1940s, when a particular flavor would be specially promoted for a month at a time? And did you know that 'off the cuff' refers to the rather messy practice of writing impromptu notes on one's shirt cuff before speaking in public? These and many more idioms are explained and put into context in this second edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Idioms .

The Oxford Dictionary of New Words - Sara Tulloch, Elizabeth Knowles, Julia Elliott
This revised edition presents Oxford's latest research into new words in the language, telling the story of around 2000 words and phrases prominent in the media or the public eye in the 1980s and 90s. Covering words from all around the English-speaking world, it includes articles on Aga saga, Archie, Britpop, car bra, ecological footprint, feminazi, Japanimation, loved-up, mosh, Olestra, pink pound, waitron, youthism and zaitech. Each article explains the meaning of the word and uncovers the history behind its origin and use. The date of the earliest recorded usage of each word is given, along with any new derivatives it has generated. About 70 per cent of the articles are new to this edition, and the rest are revised or newly-written articles for words in the first edition which are still sufficiently prominent to warrant attention or which have acquired a new focus in recent years. Graphic icons are used throughout the text to show the areas of life in which each word is used, with icons ranging from business, the environment, health and computing to popular culture, people and society, leisure and lifestyle, and sport.

The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations - Elizabeth Knowles
The question for most people looking to purchase a book of quotations is whether to get Bartlett's Familiar Quotations or The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. So perhaps it would be a good idea to compare them and see which might better meet your needs.
Both are important works of reference; both are authoritative. Bartlett's latest edition, the 17th is from 2002 while this, the latest Oxford, is from 1999 with a reprint with corrections from 2001. So both are relatively up to date. Bartlett's is a slightly larger book with perhaps 300 more pages; however the number of actual quotations is not that different. Both books quote over 3,000 authors and contain over 20,000 quotations.

The Oxford Thesaurus An A-Z Dictionary of Synonyms
Is a great value-for-money product. It is the ultimate one-stop reference, containing both a dictionary and a thesaurus in one handy reference volume. The dictionary and thesaurus texts have an integrated design which has been tried and tested with users to speed up browsing and look-up. The dictionary has excellent coverage of everyday English, containing over 90,000 words, phrases and definitions and incorporating the newest words and phrases from Oxford's language research programmes. The thesaurus provides over 100,000 synonyms and antonyms. This handy dictionary and thesaurus is ideal for anyone who needs an affordable and portable, all-in-one reference work.

The Oxford-Duden Pictorial English Dictionary
There are certain kinds of information which can be conveyed more readily and clearly by pictures than by definitions and explanations alone: an illustration will help the reader to visualize the object denoted by the word and to form an impression of the way in which the objects function in their own technical field or in everyday life. The layout of the illustrations and text will be particularly useful to the learner. Each double page of the dictionary contains a list of the vocabulary of a subject together with the picture illustrating this vocabulary. This arrangement, and the presence of an alphabetical index, allows the book to be used in two ways: either as a key to the vocabulary of a subject, or as an alphabetical dictionary in which the reader is referred to the section, or sections, in which the word is illustrated. This second edition has been revised and updated to reflect the most up-to-date changes in technology, science and medicine, industry, and commerce and to offer even wider coverage of all major fields of reference, including the arts and entertainment, recreation and sport, flora and fauna and typical situations in domestic and everyday life. Over 1500 new items of vocabulary have been added relating to such diverse fields as photography, typesetting, personal computers, telecommunications and transport. The objects are organized thematically enabling the user to grasp the entire vocabulary relevant to a given situation or context.

The Oxford Dictionary of Allusions - Andrew Delahunty, Sheila Dignen and Penelope Stock
Allusions form a colourful extension to the English language, drawing on our collective knowledge of literature, mythology, and the Bible to give us a literary shorthand for describing people, places, and events. So a miser is a Scrooge, a strong man is a Samson or a Hercules, a beautiful woman is a Venus or a modern-day Helen of Troy- -we can suffer like Sisyphus, fail like Canute, or linger like the smile of the Cheshire Cat.
This reference work explains the meanings of the allusions in use in modern English, from Abaddon to Zorro, Tartarus to Tarzan, and Rubens to Rambo. Quotations from a range of authors and sources are included at most entries to illustrate usage--anywhere from Thomas Hardy to Ben Elton, Charles Dickens to Bridget Jones's Diary. This second edition includes completely up-to-date allusions--from Gollum to Kofi Annan--and a handy A-Z order has been adopted for extra ease of reference and usability.
