Abstract:

Newly updated, the nation's most popular collegiate dictionary adds many new words to its pages, including blog, proteomics, SARS, Amber Alert, and WiFi as well as new biographical data on Donald Rumsfeld, Billy Collins, and Serena Williams, among others, and is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing the complete text of the dictionary and a thesaurus. The newly updated American Heritage College Dictionary presents the very best that a college dictionary can offer. Bearing the distinctive hallmarks of the American Heritage line, the College Dictionary has an accessible and readable defining style, helpful usage guidance, and an attractive design, with more than 2,500 photographs and drawings that enhance the definitions and invite sustained reading. Among the new words in this 2004 update are such recently prominent terms as Amber Alert, blog, proteomics, SARS, and WiFi, along with new biographical entries for such figures as Lance Armstrong, Donald Rumsfeld, Billy Collins, and Serena Williams. In addition, currency entries have been updated to reflect the adoption of the euro by participating members of the European Union. As the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference resource on the market today, the feature-packed American Heritage College Dictionary, Fourth Edition is a tremendous value.
