Editorial Reviews

**** Recommended in General Reference Books for Adults, which describes its 225,000-word lexicon as "well-chosen," its definitions as "clear and precise," its illustrative sentences as "carefully chosen," its pages as "well-designed," and the whole as a "model of the lexicographer's craft." Valuable for general reference collections as an unabridged dictionary in the same class as The Random House Dictionary of the English Language, and Webster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary.
