Chambers Dictionary

A correspondent recently asked whether the 14th edition of Chambers was on the horizon. I didn’t know the answer, and there seemed to be no reliable information on the web.

I thought twice before contacting the publishers, since my last mail to them (September 2018) is still awaiting a response. However, I’m pleased to report that I had a reply within less that 24 hours (well done Jen of John Murray Press), which reads as follows:

Thanks for your message.
 We do not have a firm publication date for the 14th edition of The Chambers Dictionary, but we are anticipating that it will likely be in the next couple of years.

Based on this, I would rate it extremely unlikely that we will see a new edition published in the next 12 months, with my money being on somewhere between 18 and 30 months from now, probably nearer 30 than 18.
