About the Author:

The Editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries and of other reference titles published by Houghton Mifflin Company are trained lexicographers with a varied array of interests and expertise. Most of the editors hold graduate degrees and have studied at least one foreign language. Several have degrees in linguistics or in the history of the English language. Others have degrees in science or sometimes other disciplines. All the editors familiarize themselves with the vocabulary in specific subject areas, collect materials on new developments and usage, and work in association with consultants to ensure that the content of our publications is as accurate and as up-to-date as possible.

From Booklist:

The definitions in this updated edition of Webster's II New Riverside University Dictionary (1984) are similar to those in the publisher's American Heritage College Dictionary (1993). Webster's II has 160,000 entries versus 185,000 in American Heritage. Among the words missing from Webster's II are obscenities. It also has a style manual, a list of colleges and universities, and other features. For high-school libraries that didn't buy The American Heritage College Dictionary, third edition, or The American Heritage High School Dictionary, third edition. Sandy Whiteley
