FOREWORD

This new Pocket Books paperback dictionary is based on the acclaimed Webster's New World College Dictionary, Fourth Edition, published in 1999. It is a completely new work: the previous paperback edition was published in 1990 and revised in 1995. As were all previous editions, it has been edited for readers who need a reliable, up-todate, portable dictionary for use in the home, at school, or in the office.

The dictionary offers broad coverage of idiomatic expressions, supplements definitions with many helpful illustrative phrases, and provides brief but helpful usage labels and etymologies. Every entry has been designed to enhance the reader's understanding of current meanings and connotations. This dictionary reflects the expertise of Webster's New World staff lexicographers, who have a combined 150 years of experience in editing dictionaries.

This latest edition includes comprehensive coverage of changes in the political structure of Europe and Africa during the past decade and thousands of new terms in the rapidly changing vocabulary of American English. These terms range from technical terminology to slang and include anti-lock, bandwidth, balsamic vinegar, bipolar, broadband, HTML, microbrewery, no-brainer, reboot, sport utility vehicle, up to speed, warp speed, World Wide Web, and many others.

Every reader is encouraged to read the Guide to the Use of the Dictionary, which begins on page v. It gives a clear explanation of how to access the wealth of information stored within the dictionary's entries.
