Publisher Comments:

Editor's PrefaceSince its first appearance in 1940, the "Crossword Puzzle Dictionary, compiled by the late Andrew Swanfeldt, has acquired a widespread and loyal following among crossword puzzle fans. Each successive edition improved and expanded the original. The third edition introduced the Instant Finder System, in which answer words are listed according to the number of letters. In this fifth edition, the editors have responded to many reader requests by providing separate lists for prefixes, suffixes, and combining forms, lists that can be found at the back of the book. To this fifth edition thousands of new words, both clue words and answer words, have been added and the book has been completely reset in larger type for easier reading. This fifth edition more than adequately reflects today's crossword puzzle clues and answers.We are greatly indebted to Mr. John Willig, who began and completed a substantial amount of the revisions for this fifth edition. Mr. Willig died during his work on the book, and will be remembered with great fondness and deep gratitude. Ms. Ruth Adler took over the task of revising the book with admirable drive and attention to detail. She has our sincere thanks for a superb job.

Synopsis:

Featuring more than 330,000 answer words, this sixth edition of the popular crossword reference continues to provide the most extensive and accessible guidance to perplexed solvers. Includes the much-imitated "Instant Finder System", which groups answer words by their number of letters.

Synopsis:

  • More than 1/3 million answer words
  • Easiest to use
  • Easiest on the eyes

Here is the work that made all other puzzle dictionaries obsolete. Its unique Instant Finder System saves you time-consuming searches through the long, jumbled paragraphs of words that are so common in other crossword puzzle dictionaries. Suppose your clue is a six-letter word for RAGE: just turn to that entry and your eye immediately picks out the bold number 6. Now you can pick your answer from just five words, ignoring the 32 others that can't fit.

And note how the clear type and uncluttered format help make your search quicker and easier!
