There has never been more exciting time to produce new dictionary. Everything is changing and expanding: English language itself, technology that helps us to describe it, and needs and goals of those learning and teaching English. 1980s saw development of first large corpora (special collections) of English text.

Another of Macmillan English Dictionary's innovations is that two similar but separate editions have been created from same database: one for learners whose main target variety is American English, other for learners of British English. differences are small but significant.

Macmillan English Dictionary is product of good linguistic data and high-quality people. It has been unique privilege to work with such talented and creative team, and I would like to thank team for producing such excellent book. I hope you enjoy results of our hard work and find dictionary pleasure to use.
