This dictionary is very easy-to-use and gives me full and complete definitions.
When I need to look up a word with an obscure usage or special idiom, I can find it in this dictionary 99% of the time without having to resort to an unabridged dictionary.
I love my New World Collegiate dictionary.
Note: This dictionary is thumb indexed and it benefits from having a dictionary software that runs with Windows XP or later over its previous version.
The Webster's New World College Dictionary is one that has by far the best roots and synonym studies of any Dictionary of the college level that I have seen. It gives Sanskrit roots which is often quite wonderful.
- clear, readable definitions that provide instant understanding
- thousands of examples of current word usage
- more than 160,000 entries and over 800 illustrations, biographical photographs, and maps
- page and text redesigned for even greater readability
- the official dictionary of the Associated Press
Best, J-P G
For less than 20 bucks, you get an excellent hard bound dictionary, and an excellent electronic dictionary. Best deal on Amazon as far as I'm concerned. I'd pop 20 bucks just for the electronic version.
nb the "pictures" that one reviewer complained about are a miniscule part of the space of the page; most pages have only one, and over 50% have none at all. many are actually maps or other useful diagrams (parts of a feather, a horse, the frame of a house, etc.).
