Google Dictionary Switched To Oxford Pocket Dictionary
Google used Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary in the past but today they are now using Oxford Pocket Dictionary of Current English. What is the difference? Well, here are two words with different explanations:
Collins: “If you call someone a swot, you disapprove of the fact that they study extremely hard and are not interested in other things.”
Oxford: “A person who studies hard, esp. one regarded as spending too much time studying.”
