Publisher Comments:

No longer a test of classical knowledge, the modern crossword is a challenging labyrinth of clever clues, timely puns, and computer-age acronyms that baffle even puzzle afficionados. Completely revised and expanded, The Dell Crossword Dictionary ends the search for precisely the right word by providing a ready reference as up-to-date as this morning's puzzle.

Including a thoroughly cross-referenced "Word Finder," the most extensive "Name-Finder" in any dictionary, and countless special trivia sections, this comprehensive, easy to use reference tools is a must-have for any puzzle fan.

Synopsis:

Stumped by the site of the '68 Olympics? Pondering the name of a Portuguese coin? Look it up in "The Dell Crossword Dictionary," the ultimate reference for word puzzle solvers. Packed with solving aids for pun-filled clues and difficult "cryptic clues," the dictionary has been fully updated for the computer age.

I've used Dell crossword dictionary for years but fear I may have to use a different one, mabye Websters. Dell is no longer up to date and hasn't been for years. I'm disappointed as it used to be better than the others but no more.
