    I've rarely encountered a word not found in this dictionary. The only problem is that there are only British pronunciations.

    I have loved Collins paper dic for advanced learner since its way it explains words and the like. For example if I looks up the word 'love', it starts like if you love someone~~ which is way better than other similar dics. I dont know why it is different from the original one.

    Wish it has an option for audio pronunciation of words to here how they sound at times when there are words that's uncommon. Other than that it's excellent!
