Completely revised and updated, the new second edition of the Collins COBUILD Phrasal Verbs Dictionary provides learners of English with in-depth treatment of the most common phrasal verbs in current British and American English. Illustrated by thousands of examples from the Bank of English, this dictionary will prove invaluable to all learners and teachers of English.
Through a collaborative initiative, Collins COBUILD and Heinle are co-publishing a dynamic new line of learner's dictionaries offering unparalleled pedagogy and learners' resources. The first Collins COBUILD dictionary was published in 1987, thanks in part to John Sinclair, one of the very first modern corpus linguists who personally oversaw the creation of the Bank of English. Every COBUILD dictionary is based on the Bank of English, a huge electronic database of both written and spoken language, which today contains over 650 million words.
