Occasionally, I checked the word "check", which has the meaning to hold someone or sth back. I looked up the syn part and found the 3 synomyms" check,restrain and curb". I am afraid the subtle meaning difference described on this dictionary is incorrect. "Check implies arresting suddenly,halting or cause to halt" "Restrain implies the use of force to put under control,or chiefly, to hold back" "Curb implies the use of a means ... to force to stay within definite limits" But after checking webster international dictionary (3rd edition) and world book dictionary(pdf formation), I found the implication" check implies use of means to ...(wrong) "" restrain implies the use of force to ... (correct)" and "curb implies a control pulls back suddenly (wrong)". Anyone can show your kind suggestion on that? Is the publishing house reliable? It sounds this edition is based on the content from The Random House Dictionary of the English Language. I had bought that dictionary as well, and made a comparison , the content is the same as this dictionary. So both of the two dictionaries have wrong information?
