Publisher Comments:

The American Heritage Dictionary Define-a-Thon for the High School Graduate offers an entertaining way to help high school students and graduates become vocabulary masters. Written by the editors of the American Heritage dictionaries, this book will encourage students and parents alike to energize their word power. The book has two parts—a challenge section and an answers section. Each question in the challenge section consists of a definition along with four candidate words, of which only one is correct. The answers section gives the correct answer and shows that word in an example sentence. It also provides word histories and quotations by respected authors. All the candidate words are defined, and there is a separate list of the correct answers for quick look-up. The American Heritage Dictionary Define-a-Thon for the High School Graduate offers a fun and easy way for anyone who enjoys language to get on good terms with some useful new words and to appreciate the importance of a strong vocabulary.
