The Definitive Guide to American English

Webster’s New World College Dictionary includes more unique Americanisms – more than 12,000 – than any other college dictionary. Its crisp, dynamic defining style is itself uniquely American.

Synopsis:

The Most Useful College Dictionary You Can Own

Published at the turn of the new century, the Fourth Edition of Webster’s New World College Dictionary represents the finest linguistic scholarship, years of dedicated effort, and an unswerving commitment to information that is clear and readable, precise, up-to-date, and reliable.

Through more than five decades of research, Webster’s New World lexicographers have created a uniquely modern dictionary that serves as your trusted guide to contemporary usage. The rich history of our language is also traced through Americanisms and the most detailed etymologies of any American English dictionary. The result is a dictionary that helps you understand and use the language as no other dictionary can.

The main text is supplemented with reference sections that provide a wealth of information not found in any other college-level dictionary, including a full-color atlas of the world, rules of punctuation, geographical tables, scientific and measurement charts, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and more.

Synopsis:

The best dictionary in its class--now updated with 2000 U.S. census data and more than 50 new words. Webster's New World College Dictionary has been defining American English for more than 50 years. It's the dictionary of choice for the Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and other leading news organizations. For 2002, we're introducing significant revisions to the Fourth Edition.
