The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition
Houghton Mifflin
2000, Third Edition

The goal of the Dictionary is to provide the user with comprehension and appreciation of the language in a readable manner.
The pages of the Third Edition, a lexicon of more than 200,000 boldface forms, hundreds of thousands of meanings, and nearly 4,000 pieces of art, reflect the rich and varied texture of American English as it has been used over time by a broad group of educated speakers.
The A-Z vocabulary, containing more than 16,000 words and meanings new to this Edition, is a comprehensive, detailed record of the language. Use of citations allowed the editors to identify new words and new meanings, identify levels of usage, and select more than 4,000 quoted illustrations from nearly 2,000 sources for use in exemplifying entry words in printed context.
The Third Edition contains more than 500 notes and comments on matters of grammar, diction, pronunciation, and levels and nuances of usage.
A great many Modern English words can be traced to the reconstructed ancestral language called Proto-Indo-European. The etymologies in the Third Edition, like those in the First, trace many words to their earliest ascertainable origins, usually in Proto-Indo-European, by means of cross-references to a new and thoroughly revised Appendix of Indo-European Roots. The Appendix, in a major departure from previous style, gives the root followed by a brief gloss and a list of some of the Modern English words derived from it.

The Concise American Heritage Dictionary

The Concise American Heritage Dictionary. Revised Edition
Houghton Mufflin Company, Boston, 1987
The American Heritage Dictionary was revised recently to reflect the language of the '80's. New general and technical words were added to record the language that is used today in the arts, sciences, business, politics, and the media. It is the first major Dictionary in ten years. This edition, prepared by the staff of the American Heritage Dictionary, is an independent reference work embodying in smaller form the additions of the parent book. Entries and definitions have been selected and rewritten or edited to be as lucid and useful as possible. The definitions are enhanced by the lavish use of illustrations, charts, and diagrams.
