American Heritage Dictionary 3RD Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With more than 350,000 entries and definitions--including 16,000 new words and meanings; over 500 usage notes from our Usage Panel; 4,000 illustrations; an Appendix of Indo-European Roots; 900 synonym paragraphs; 400 word history notes; and more. The American Heritage(R) Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition takes the best-selling tradition of the original edition, published in 1969, into the twenty-first century. Its striking appearance, richness of information, and accessibility distinguishes it from every other dictionary ever published.

Book News Annotation:

A remarkable bargain and a pleasure to use for research or browsing, notable for its aesthetic attractiveness (a particularly clear and handsome typeface, spacious pages, and some 4,000 pieces of margin art--b&w photographs, line drawings, and maps); its ease of use (thumb-indexing, large and dark running heads, no bemystifying abbreviations or symbols to decipher); its abundance of aids to usage; and finally its clear and precise word meanings (some 350,000 entries, about 16,000 of them new), along with thousands of etymologies, 400 word history paragraphs, 900 cross-referenced synonym paragraphs, and more than 100 Regional American English Notes. Goes to the head of the class.
