Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
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.

Review:
The third edition of the American Heritage Dictionary is a beauty--2,134 pages and 8.5 pounds--containing a lexicon of more than 200,000 entries, plus an appendix of Indo-European roots for etymology enthusiasts. The crisp white pages and sharp black print are easy on the eyes, the drawings and pictures (nearly 4,000 in all) are a delight, and along with the lucid, erudite definitions are 4,000-plus quoted illustrations of usage from the likes of Shakespeare, Melville, and Updike. Though it's the chosen reference of editors, it's more than a mere tool of the trade--it's a luxurious linguistic experience.
