The Collins COBUILD Advanced Dictionary[1] (CCAD) from HarperCollins, first published in 1987[2] is a dictionary that distinguished itself by providing definitions in full sentences rather than excerpted phrases. Example sentences are given for almost every meaning of every word, drawn from a large corpus of actual usage.

Except for the 6th edition, it included phonetic transcriptions based on the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). In some editions, a digital version on CD-ROM was included with the dictionary in book form.

The CCAD seems to skimp on American English, but there is its equivalent titled Collins COBUILD Advanced Dictionary of American English.
