Book Overview
Based on the authoritative American Heritage (R) Dictionary of the English Language , Fifth Edition, this new edition of the American Heritage (R) Desk Dictionary has been completely updated; every single entry has been reviewed and revised as necessary. Its thousands of new words and senses, such as antiquark , earbud , and the verb sense of friend , reflect recent developments in the sciences, technology, and popular culture. Hundreds of photographs and drawings enhance the text, and several tables such as the periodic table of the elements and a table of units of measurement provide helpful data in a useful visual format. Forming the heart of the dictionary, however, are its more than 70,000 entry words, whose clear, straightforward definitions--supplemented by pronunciations, inflections of irregular verbs and plural nouns, and selected etymologies--make the American Heritage (R) Desk Dictionary an essential reference for the office, school, or home.
