  Concise Oxford English Dictionary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Concise Oxford English Dictionary (until 2002 officially entitled The Concise Oxford Dictionary, and widely known by the abbrevation COD) is probably the best-known of the 'smaller' Oxford dictionaries.
It was started as a derivative of the Oxford English Dictionary, although section S–Z had to be written before the Oxford English Dictionary actually reached that stage.
Rather than being a revision of the ninth edition, it is based on the larger New Oxford Dictionary of English (1998), whose compilation had involved a re-analysis of much of the core vocabulary using the British National Corpus.

The dictionary, as the English language, has constantly evolved over time, keeping up to date with changes in word meaning, and with new words being constantly added all the time (for example, I don't imagine the first edition contained an entry for "Internet" or even "Television").
The Oxford Dictionary tells you a word's root, phonetical soundings (very useful if you do not know how to pronounce it!) and all their various meanings.
