Staff Choice

I’ve been flicking through this dictionary for five minutes and already I’ve learned these excellent words: cromlech, grosgrain, Becquerel, oleaginous, barograph, tergiversation. What better way to explore the English language? There’s even a 90-page encyclopedia of places, people and useful facts helpfully spliced between H and I.
