Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The newly updated American Heritage® College Dictionary presents the very best that a college dictionary can offer. Bearing the distinctive hallmarks of the American Heritage line, the College Dictionary has an accessible and readable defining style, helpful usage guidance, and an attractive design, with more than 2,500 photographs and drawings that enhance the definitions and invite sustained reading.

Among the new words in this 2004 update are such recently prominent terms as Amber Alert, blog, proteomics, SARS, and WiFi, along with new biographical entries for such figures as Lance Armstrong, Donald Rumsfeld, Billy Collins, and Serena Williams. In addition, currency entries have been updated to reflect the adoption of the euro by participating members of the European Union.

As the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference resource on the market today, the feature-packed American Heritage® College Dictionary, Fourth Edition is a tremendous value.

Book News Annotation:

The fourth edition of this reference work reflects the multitude of changes in the English language since publication of the previous version nine years ago. It contains 7,500-plus new words, and new uses and pronunciations of existing terms, including computer and Internet vocabulary and newly- coined words in science, politics, and the arts. It also features additional biographical entries for people gaining prominence in the past decade; updated entries for U.S. towns, cities, and states with statistics from the 2000 census; and 2,500 new photographs, drawings, and maps. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the full text of the dictionary, with audio pronunciations, and the college-level Roget's II: The New Thesaurus, Third Edition with some 260,000 synonyms.

Lovely presentation and keen scholarship nearly eclipse the joy of browsing the dearly departed Random House Collegiate Dictionary. Essential for any serious academic or professional discourse. Etymologies and roots both inform and inspire the curious linguist among many curious others.
