Summary

Based on the extraordinary hardcover bestseller The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, this new edition is the result of four years of intense research by a panel of experts. Among the innovations and special features are 16,000 new words reflecting modern usage and more than 2,500 illustrations and charts.

This third edition of a dictionary of the English language has "approximately 200,000 main entries compared with 155,000 in the first edition and 145,000 in the second. . . . About 16,000 entries are new to this edition. . . .Abbreviations, acronyms, people, and places are all in the A-Z main text. . .. Meanings of a word are ordered so that the one most often sought, not the oldest one, is first. . . . There are 400 word histories. . . . Five hundred usage notes . . . deal with grammar, diction, and pronunciation. . . . Many entries use labels to indicate subject areas, archaic or obsolete terms, regionalisms, and dialect usage."
