Webster's New World Crossword Puzzle Dictionary

2nd Edition
By Jane Shaw Whitfield

Pocket

Copyright © 2003 Jane Shaw Whitfield
All right reserved.

ISBN: 067100977X

Foreword

This new edition of Webster's New World Crossword Puzzle Dictionary represents a thorough revision and updating of the highly successful work originally compiled by Jane Shaw Whitfiels. Thousands of new clue words and answer terms have been aded from crossword puzzles published since last revision. Biographical and geographical entries are now completely up to date. Tables have been introduced to provide a particularly effective and convenient way to locate large bocks of related terms in one place. In addition, a user's guide created especially for this edition will assist readers in finding precisely the words they want quickly and easily.

Crossword puzzle dictionaries and crossword puzzle solvers share, predictably, some special characteristics. Both are distinguished by their breadth of vocabulary and by their unique intellectual focus on the relationship between clues and answers. The editors of Webster's New World dictionaries wish to acknowledge the contributions to this edition of one very gifted crossword puzzle enthusiast, Mr. Joe Forest of Sharonville, Ohio, whose insightful suggestions have been invaluable.

This all-new second edition remains in one respect unchanged, namely, it is, as Jane Shaw Whitfield wrote in her foreword to the first edition, dedicated "to all enthusiasts of crossword puzzles and to their creators."

    Small print but A-o.k. with Magnifier. I do like the added Tables - very helpful. Great replacement for my much used and badly worn earlier edition.
