Collins COBUILD Phrasal Verbs Dictionary gives learners of English detailed help with this often tricky area of the English language. This edition has been fully revised to provide learners with detailed information on phrasal verbs in a language that is easy to understand. The new, 2-colour layout of the dictionary means that it is easier than ever for students to find the information they need.

With over a thousand new phrasal verbs, and thousands of updated examples from the Collins Corpus, this major new edition is packed with information on how phrasal verbs work, what they mean and how to use them.

New features for this edition include an index of 200 single-word verbs and their phrasal verb equivalents, plus information on when you should use a single-word verb (for example, in academic writing) and when a phrasal verb would be more appropriate (for example, during an informal conversation with a friend).

This edition also includes collocations boxes, providing students with the language they need to build natural-sounding sentences in English. There is also a self-study exercise section at the back of the book so that students can practise and consolidate what they have learnt. The fully-revised particles index provides students with in-depth information on what particles mean, boosting their vocabulary and understanding of the language.

As with all COBUILD products, the Collins Corpus provides thousands of examples of real English, showing words in context and providing essential guidance on usage.

Attractively presented, the Collins COBUILD Phrasal Verbs Dictionary is invaluable for all learners of English wishing to gain a fuller understanding of phrasal verbs and use them more effectively.

Great app! Very convenient app to have (5 stars)
Great app! Very convenient app to have when u hear/see a word & want to know how to spell it or what its meaning is. The sound feature is also very nice to hear the pronunciations. I also enjoy the "word of the day" when opening the app. Also, if u use WiFi for your internet access (such as myself), you can d/l the dictionary for offline use (audio pronunciations available only w/internet access) which comes in VERY handy for p

I use this app constantly I teach (5 stars)
I use this app constantly I teach english on-line and the thing I do the most is explain the meaning of words, which this app helps with. Sometimes I can't quite come up with an adequate definition and the app withs it's examples is a great resource to helping my students.

A Masterpiece! I have exactly the same (5 stars)
A Masterpiece! I have exactly the same request as another reviewer (Greg). 1. WOTD word of the day feature/widget. Other high end dictionaries have one! Why not OALD? 2. Arranging favourites into multiple lists for vocabulary learning/reference/sharing would put OALD in a different league altogether! QmmWhAOebmSGYmTVoTap
