Collins is the home of living English
Language is constantly evolving, and here at Collins we are continually monitoring language usage with our 4.5 billion word corpus, the largest database of words in the world. If you’ve heard a new word, coined a new phrase or definition, we want to hear about it. Collins is the only dictionary that you, the public, can submit new words, phrases and definitions to be considered for inclusion in the Collins Dictionary, which makes Collins the home of living, breathing English.
