Collins COBUILD Advanced Dictionary

The Collins COBUILD Advanced Dictionary[1] (CCAD) (ISBN 0-00-715799-1) from HarperCollins had example sentences for almost every meaning of every word showing how to use a word. Its definitions are full sentences and not just phrases. It had phonetic transcriptions except the 6th edition. The transcriptions were based on the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) — the most popular phonetic alphabet in the world. A digital version on CD-ROM was included with the paper one of the book. Unfortunately, the CCAD seems to skimp on American English, but there is its equivalent titled Collins COBUILD Advanced Dictionary of American English.
